In 1 Cor. 13:4, we see Paul explain that love is not arrogant. When we rightly see arrogance for what it is, the greatest danger is not the arrogance of others but our own arrogance. This arrogance envies when others get good gifts from God, but it also boasts when it receives good gifts. We all struggle with arrogance and need rescued. Listen and hear how Jesus becomes the humble Savior we need.
In 1 Corinthians 13:4, Paul says that "love does not envy." Envy is distressed by the grace of God, which means it is an enemy of grace in general. Envy cannot rejoice at the good gifts God gives to others and fools us into thinking we are getting justice when we help others see they don't deserve good gifts. Listen and hear how Jesus is the much needed remedy to our envy.
In 1 Corinthians 13:4, Paul says, "Love is kind." A kindness that comes from love not only meets the needs of people, but ultimately desires to do good to their soul. Listen and hear how God our Savior appeared to show us how love is kind and how needy we are for such kindness.
In 1 Corinthians 13:4, Paul says, "Love is patient." A love that is patient is able to suffer long for the sake of others. Do you build walls when you are hurt by someone? Do you attack back and get even? Listen and hear of a love that is patient and suffers long that we all desperately need.
In 1 Cor. 13:3, we see Paul say that without love all of life's greatest endeavors are meaningless. Many of us love our jobs, family, etc. but the love Paul is talking about is a love outside of us. Listen and hear why we need this great love so badly.
