~ God is Love~

1 John 4:8b
 "...God is love."
Isn't that a beautiful thought?
 God is love.
 I was pondering on this when 1 Corinthians 13 came to mind. You know, the "Love Chapter"? 

1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
Charity never faileth: 

 What I gathered from these two passages of Scripture is, 
 God is Love,  
God suffers long
God envies not
God vaunteth not Himself, is not puffed up
God does not behave Himself unseemly
God doesn't seek out His own kind
God is not easily provoked

God thinks no evil
God rejoices not in iniquity, but rejoices in truth
God bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things
But above all....
God never fails!
Aren't those comforting thoughts? That God can do all those things, and still love us. 

Blessings and happy Spring,

Ephesians 4:29-30 KJV.

29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
