Love Never Fails

1 Corinthians 13:4-8
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”
I look at elderly couples, couples who have spent the better portion of their lives together & I am inspired by their complete devotion to one another. They have celebrated the miracles of life hand in hand, cried in each other’s arms through the tribulations. They have argued, fought, made mistakes. But in the end they are in love, more than they were the day they pledged their love to the world & God.
