Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Robert G. Ingersoll, a noted atheist from the 19th century, used to enjoy standing on platforms debating the reality of God with ministers and the like. And at times, Ingersoll would pull out a stop watch, click it, hold it up, and say, “I defy God, if there is a God, to strike me dead in the next 5 minutes!”
One day, Ingersoll tried his typical trick. But this time, the debating minister quipped back and said, “Sir, do you really think that you could exhaust the patience and the love of God in 5 measly minutes?”
Yes, God’s love is everlasting! And when you have the love of God in your heart, you’ll also begin to love others like God loves you. You’ll learn to be patient, kind, slow to anger, and never failing. You’ll love with a 1 Corinthians 13 kind of love.
Business fails, health fails, wealth fails, and even friends may fail. But the love of Jesus never fails! And even on the cross when the mockers cried out, “If you are the Son of God, come down from the cross” (Matthew 27:40), love kept Him fastened to the cross. Real love never fails. That’s the love God has for you… and it’s the love you can show to others, too!
GOD’S LOVE NEVER FAILS. SO REFLECT THAT SAME LOVE TO OTHERS BY LOVING PATIENTLY AND UNSELFISHLY.
