Happy Valentine's Day.

Hello all! I hope everyone is enjoying a nice weekend. Happy Valentine's Day. Although I do tend to feel that this day is basically just a hallmark holiday, I do like to celebrate love. There are so many great verses about love found in the Bible. I thought that today might be a great day to have a Scripture Sunday of sorts. Who knows, maybe this will become a regular thing for me.
Tonight I would like to share 1 Corinthians 13:1-13 as read from the NIV.

1If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing. 

4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. 11When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. 12Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. 

13And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
