Trends, fashions, and philosophies come and go, but love—genuine love—never goes out of style. It remains because real love is rooted in the very nature of God and humanity. The Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians chapter 13 penned the best commentary of love. He wrote: “If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing. If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it, but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing. Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful and endures through every circumstance. Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.” May we, the people of God, show the world what true love is all about.
