Re:Verse reading–1 Corinthians 13 (day three) 

“Love never fails.” 

Fails to what?  To “be there” for you when you come to your senses?  No, it’s already with you in your foolishness.  You are never beyond love’s presence, though you might be unwilling to receive it or believe it or learn its ways—so unwilling that it might seem you’ve become unable to do so.  Ask yourself: Does anybody in your life regard you with love, however imperfectly acted upon?  Most likely, you will say yes.  If then you have not wandered beyond love’s reach, you have not wandered beyond God’s reach, because love is the mark of God’s regard for you.  And if another person would claim that his or her life is devoid of the love of parent, friend, spouse, or child—a great tragedy—what then? Will love announce its presence through you?
