Love Is Patient, Love Is Kind - 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

It sums up everything most important in life and spirituality. Without love, everything we do will amount to utter meaninglessness. To that end, I will analyze certain parts of this passage, focusing particularly on key words as they were in the original Greek translation. In 1 Corinthians , Paul describes the many attributes of the highest form of "love"—agape, in the Greco-Christian translation—that the Christian community should strive to embody: Love for God, and Love for one another. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
Who Wrote 1 Corinthians 13, and Who Was It Written To?
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, 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. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
It is used often in Christian wedding ceremonies. In this famous passage, the Apostle Paul described 15 characteristics of love to the believers in the church at Corinth. With deep concern for the unity of the church, Paul focused on various different aspects of love between brothers and sisters in Christ:. This kind of patient love bears with offenses and is slow to repay or punish those who offend. However, it does not imply indifference, which would ignore an offense.
