1 Corthians 13:4-8 Love is patient, love is kind, it is not envious. Love does not brag, it is not puffed up. It is not rude, it is not self-serving, it is not easily angered or resentful, It is not glad about injustice, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.  Love never ends.

Love believes, hopes and endures.  Love never ends.  Most of us have heard people say, “If you don’t do ____ I won’t love you” or “If you do _____ I won’t love you.  We all tend to put conditions on our love for another.  We even put conditions on out love foe God.  When things or people don’t go along with what we want we don’t want to love.  Love can’t originate from us.  It not originates and flows from God. When we block God we block love.  We sometimes think God is to serve us and make us happy.  We seem to not understand our place in creation.  Only by the grace and gift of God can we take our next breath.  I hope we have all read this verse enough times to hold it in our memory.  I recite it by changing the word “love” with my name.  Many times I’m so far away I have to laugh before I tearfully confess and ask God to remove my blockages and refill me with His Holy Spirit.  Once again the choice is ours.  Our question is what do we choose; real love from God or a false imitation of love on our own?
