Paul Taught About Love, I Corinthians 13

The church in Corinth was having some trouble. The people were not getting along. Paul wrote to the Corinthians and in his letter he told the people that the greatest gift God gives His people is love.

Then Paul told the people about love:

“Love is patient.

Love is kind.

Love does not envy.

Love does not boast.

Love is not proud.

Love is not rude.

Love is not selfish, insisting on having its way.

Love does not get angry easily.

Love does not keep track of when someone does wrong.

Love does not like evil because love rejoices in the truth.

Love bears all things.

Love believes.

Love hopes.

Love endures.

Love doesn’t end or give up.

The greatest gift is love.”
