You can’t love like that (1 Corinthians 13)

Of course not. It’s about Jesus. He’s the perfect example of love lived out. Many of us talk it. He lived it and continues to live it.

The rest of the verses in that chapter highlight the primacy of love amidst many things we value. The purity and excellency of love is elegantly inserted right in the middle

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast ; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. (1 Corinthians 13:4-7).

It makes us long for it. Yet it seems so far out of reach. But we’re moving in that direction of Jesus as the ultimate expression of love.
