Feb 14 Devotion: The Expression of Love!

I Cor. 13:4-8 & v. 13Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;

7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

8 ¶ Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

In this chapter, the word charity conveys the endearing terms of love. Therefore, this chapter is often referred to as the “love chapter”. This time of year many feel that love is shown through cards, chocolate, a candlelit dinner, or a cache of flowers. Love’s true expression is revealed in this passage.
