We all cherish and love the verses of 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, but often wonder how apply them to our daily lives.
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, 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.” (1 Corinthians 13:4-7)
The following “one another verses” instruct us in how to implement this kind of love into our every day lives and be the body of Christ that the Lord wants us to be.
