Romancing Your Spouse-Day 40 of 40: Love Never Fails


"4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8 Love never fails."
 --1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (from the NIV: New International
Version of the Bible)

Our Focus:
Today we conclude our 40 day devotion with verse 8, "Love never fails."

Question for Reflection:
What do you love most about your spouse?

Well, you made it to the final day of our devotional! Congrats! : )

Simply put, I thank you for reading this devotional, whether it was just one entry, or the entire series.

I thank Mr. Harris, from our Bible Study group, for being the inspiration for
this devotional.

I learned a great deal while writing each entry and hope all of you did as well.

Please read the all of 1 Corinthians 13 to get the full context of Paul's letter to the Church at Corinthian. In sum, Paul was told the church that although many of them were using their spiritual gifts, all of those gifts were nothing without love.

Also read the King James Version of this chapter as the Elizabethan language used is poetic and beautiful.

The work doesn't end here. Take all that you've learned over the course of 40 days and make a point to apply what works.
