After confessing to a friend that my heart was not right about a matter, I went to 1 Corinthians 13 to find what I needed, a picture of what love is and what it is not.

Dividing it into sections helps me remember it better.

Love is

  • Patient
  • Kind 

Love does not

  • Envy
  • Keep record of wrongs
  • Delight in evil

Love is not

  • Proud
  • Rude
  • Self-seeking
  • Easily angered


  • Rejoices with the truth

Love always

  • Protects
  • Trusts
  • Hopes
  • Perseveres


  • Never fails
