|love is kind.||Love cares more for others than for self.|
|It does not envy,||Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.|
|it does not boast,||Love doesn’t strut,|
|it is not proud.||Doesn’t have a swelled head,|
|It is not rude,||Doesn’t force itself on others,|
|it is not self-seeking,||Isn’t always “me first,”|
|it is not easily angered,||Doesn’t fly off the handle,|
|it keeps no record of wrongs.||Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others,|
|Love does not delight in evil||Doesn’t revel when others grovel,|
|but rejoices with the truth.||Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,|
|It always protects,||Puts up with anything,|
|always trusts,||Trusts God always,|
|always hopes,||Always looks for the best,|
|always perseveres.||Never looks back, But keeps going to the end.|
|Love never fails.||Love never dies.|
“So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.”
–1 Corinthians 13:13 (NIV)
