1 Corinthians 13:8
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
The first 3 words of this verse are so powerful!!! LOVE NEVER FAILS…it lasts! It is permanent, it never quits, it never gives up, and it’s never ‘not enough’. True love… is a love that never fails. If a person says that they once loved, but now they no longer do, well according to this verse (that love wasn’t the real deal!!!).
The kind of Love being discussed in this verse is not the kind of Love that is felt for a fleeting moment. REAL, TRUE Love… NEVER FAILS!!! In scripture we learn that God is Love, and so when we think of Love in that context it becomes a bit easier to understand that it (LOVE) is eternal.
What ever we do with our lives, (prophesy, speak, attain knowledge) will eventually come to a close, our prophecies will cease, our words will be quieted, our knowledge will eventually fade away, BUT LOVE…. will continue to exist FOREVER… Real, True, Genuine Love… never fails.
Personally, I would prefer to be investing in what I know will be everlasting….LOVE!!!!! Learning to grow, deepen, better understand and develop more Love seems to be the better of any investment this life has to offer.
