1 Corinthians 13:7 - Love ... Endures all things.
What does it mean for love to endure? It means to stay behind or remain it doesn't retreat or back away. From the POSB Commentary we read that the Greek word for endure is a military word meaning to stand against the attack of an enemy. Love actively fights and endures all attacks. Love is strong, full of fortitude and fight, and it struggles against any and every assault to buckle in to being unloving. Love conquers and triumphs - always - because it endures all things.
Sometimes we are quite unlovable.... I'm quite unlovable.... (just ask) but I'm still loved.
Dear Lord, Thank you
- For loving me (us) when we are unlovable.
- For those who love me (us) just the same
