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. .......12For 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.
Parts of I Corinthians 13 (ESV)

I suddenly saw this wonderful truth. So many years this chapter has been used as a measuring stick of our human love and interaction with one another - and it is bigger than most humans have achieved.

As this is God's heart and desire for us, for our best life, then this is also a description of God's love toward us. Sometimes I fail in grasping God's love. When things go wrong I even feel He has let me down.

I praise Him, He does not hold my feelings against me but in all things, in every way, His love is perfect, toward me; toward all His creation.

We truly comprehended His love through a glass darkly. What a glorious day it will be when we see Him face to face
