Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. — 1 Corinthians 13:7 (NLT)

Biblical love. It is so difficult to live up to. 

How many times do we give up? How many times do we lack faith? How often do we give up hope? And how many times do we flee from rather than endure difficult circumstances?

But however often we get it wrong, God never gives up on us. However often we mess things up, God never loses faith in us. However often we make mistakes, God always hopes for the best in us. However often we run away from situations and into sin, God endures every circumstance for us.

May we live up to and live out this kind of love in our daily life, from this moment on. Help us, heavenly Father. Fill us with Your Holy Spirit that we may love each other like this, just as You do. In the precious Name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
