Love Never Fails

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

As a college freshman, I was challenged by a friend to read 1 Corinthians 13 every day for 30 days.  He gave me a small book by Henry Drummond to assist me.  The experience was a life-changer.  I began to have a picture of what God’s love for me and for those around me really looked like.  Not only did I learn what the characteristics of true love were, I was floored by three words in verse 8…Love never fails.

Never?  How can that be?  Surely we get a few exceptions!  But there it is…Love never fails.  I wish I could say that it has never failed in my life since then, but I can’t.  God constantly uses those three words in my life though to shape and mold the direction of my life.  Powerful words …life-changing words…God-honoring words that can change the world!  Try reading the chapter for 30 days in a row…see what happens.
