Title: Love...the Superior Way
Post by: MULE SKINNER on February 22, 2008, 09:26:25 AM

LOVE: The Superior way .... 1 Corinthians 13:1-13 (MSG)

1-If I speak the language of men and of angels, but do not have love; I am a sounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2-If I have [the gift of] prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so that I can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3-And if I donate all my goods to feed the poor, and if I give my body to be burned, but do not have love, I have gained nothing.
4-Love is patient; love is kind. Love does not envy; is not boastful; is not conceited; 5-does not act improperly; is not selfish; is not provoked; does not keep a record of wrongs; 6-finds no joy in unrighteousness, but rejoices in the truth; 7-bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8-Love never ends.  But as for prophecies, they will come to an end; as for languages, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will come to an end. 9-For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. 10-But when the perfect comes, the partial will come to an end. 11-When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child.  When I became a man, I put aside childish things. 12-For now we see indistinctly, as in a mirror, but then face to face.  Now I know in part, but then I will know fully, as I am fully known.
13-Now these three remain: faith, hope and love  but the greatest of these is LOVE.

I have read various versions of God's word and I find "the MESSAGE" a very interesting interpentation..
Take care & God bless......MS
