1 Corinthians. 13:4-13
Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking,
It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
And now faith, hope, and love abide, but the greatest of these is love.
DAILY RESPONSE: These verses, commonly read at wedding ceremonies, define love. Love is poetry’s most common theme. Consider your definition of love. Jot it down; then turn it into a few lines of simple verse. Yes, that’s a poem. Please post it in the comments below.
