1 Corinthians 13:4a Amplified Version
Love endures long and is patient and kind.
God is love. The more we are like Him the more we will manifest what is described in 1 Corinthians 13. Verse 4 says that love endures long and is patient and kind. This is good news to us. It lets us know that God is not impatient with us. He is not quick to give up on us and He is kind to us. Oh how we need Him to endure when it comes to dealing with us. As we ask Him to help us and allow Him to help us to be more like Him, we will see ourselves becoming the same way toward others. Then we can rejoice in the love God has for us, realizing that had it not been for His great love, we would not be here today.
