Meditation — 15 September 2014

“Love really does make the world go round.”

1Corinthians 13.4-8a (CEB): Love is patient, love is kind, it isn’t jealous, it doesn’t brag, it isn’t arrogant, it isn’t rude, it doesn’t seek its own advantage, it isn’t irritable, it doesn’t keep a record of complaints, it isn’t happy with injustice, but it is happy with the truth. Love puts up with all things, trusts in all things, hopes for all things, endures all things. Love never fails.

“All you need is love.”
Lennon/McCartney

“Only love, only love can leave such a mark
     But only love, only love can heal such a scar.”
Clayton/Evans/Hewson/Mullen/Lanois/Eno

1John 4.8 (CEB): “...G‑d is Love.”

1Corinthians 13.4-8 (adapted): G‑d is patient. G‑d is kind and isn’t jealous. G‑d doesn’t brag and isn’t arrogant or rude. G‑d doesn’t seek G‑d’s own advantage. G‑d isn’t irritable and doesn’t keep a record of complaints. G‑d isn’t happy with injustice, but is happy with the truth. G‑d puts up with all things, trusts in all things, hopes for all things, endures all things. G‑d never fails.
