Love Never Ends

Love Never Ends … 1 Corinthians 13:8

Grandson and Grandma discuss the deep and important topics of the day…

The issue under discussion could cause a split…

love never ends

They could end up on opposite sides.

Finally…

A decision is reached…

“Yes,” says the three-year-old…

Love never ends

“Bring the blocks upstairs so we can play with them…”

“Build a railroad track!” he shouts…

“And a train to run on the tracks!”

love never ends

“Wow,” he says…

“That’s hard work…”

“Let’s take a nap!”

And so they do…

love never ends

While steam engines whistle by on the nearest TV…

And in the dreams of the three-year-old.

Meanwhile…

The five-year-old studies the Candy Land board…

love never ends

Her one goal?

Beating grandpa.

Again.

Surprise, surprise…

She wins.

What a day!

Some might say it’s a day when nothing important happened.

It is simply a day of love…

Simple love.

Simply shared.

And in a time of anger and division…

Division along political lines…

Division along social lines…

Perhaps there’s nothing more important than love.

Simple love…

Simply shared…

Because one day, everything we are arguing about will simply vanish.

But love never ends …

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not 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 have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.

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

Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.  For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.

So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.  1 Corinthians 13

Love Never Ends …
