Love Analogy


1 Corinthians 13:4-8 states that...
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails."


In the bible it is also said that God is Love. (1 John 4:16) So, it also means that God, without an iota of a doubt, is everything written below...

"God is patient, God is kind. He does not envy, He does not boast, He is not proud. He is not rude, He is not self-seeking, He is not easily angered, He keeps no record of wrongs. He does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. He always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. He never fails."


In Genesis 1:27, we are told that man is made in the image and likeness of God. I am a "man". Thus, I must try my very best to be God-like.
"I am patient, I am kind. I do not envy, I do not boast, I am not proud. I am not rude, I am not self-seeking, I am not easily angered, I keeps no record of wrongs. I do not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. I always protect, I always trust, I always hope, I always persevere. I never fail."


A simple analogy, when truly thought about and lived-by by every man, can make the world a better place =)
