~THE GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE~

~THE GREATEST LOVE~

If I speak in the tongues of mortals and of angels, but do not have love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give away all my possessions, and if I hand over my body so that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Love never ends. But as for prophecies, they will come to an end; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will come to an end. For we know only in part, and we prophesy only in part; but when the complete comes, the partial will come to an end. When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; when I became an adult, I put an end to childish ways. For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face to face. Now I know only in part; then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known. And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love.

May your Valentine's Day filled with the greatest love known to man. Blessings for a beautiful day...

With a grateful heart~

I am so grateful to the Lord, and I love this scripture, Rebecca. His Valentine to us is surely the greatest, most loving that was ever given to anyone. What cause for rejoicing!

Happy Valentine's Day to you, dear heart, and may the Lord continue to richly bless your life...

XO,

Sheila :-)
