From the Heart

Louise Gibson

” Agape” is self-sacrificing-
You lay down your life for your brother.
“Romantic” is emotional.
Your heart is filled with affection for another.

When you love you don’t try to keep score.
You give of yourself freely-
especially to those you adore.

A good way to have arguments
is to fight fair.
” Help me to see what I am not seeing”
It will quickly clear the air.

Love is inspiring-
It brings out the best in you.
Devotion and sacrifice will follow.
“To thine own self be true”.

Love is the most powerful emotion in the world.
Love is the most powerful emotion in life.
If all of God’s creation would lay down their arms
It would put an end to world strife.

I Corinthians 13:4-13 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil, does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away, For we know in part and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away. When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child, but when I became a man I put away childish things. For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I am known. And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
