3The Lord appeared from of old to me, saying, Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with loving-kindness have I drawn you and continued My faithfulness to you.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
4 [God’s] Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily.
5 It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God’s love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong].
6 It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail.
7 [God’s] Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening].
8 [God’s] Love never fails [never fades out or becomes obsolete or comes to an end]. …
18And for about forty years like a fatherly nurse [foster father] He [God] cared for them in the wilderness and endured their behavior.
45[Jesus said] To show that you are the children of your Father Who is in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the wicked and on the good, and makes the rain fall upon the upright and the wrongdoers [alike].
35[Jesus said] But love your enemies and be kind and do good [doing favors so that someone derives benefit from them] and lend, expecting and hoping for nothing in return but considering nothing as lost and despairing of no one; and then your recompense (your reward) will be great (rich, strong, intense, and abundant), and you will be sons of the Most High, for He is kind and charitable and good to the ungrateful and the selfish and wicked.
1 Corinthians 13:7 starts with the words “[God’s] love bears up under anything and everything that comes” and ends with “and endures everything without weakening.”
What types of circumstances do you think these words are referring to?
Can you think of any circumstance that could cause God’s love to falter?
Notice that Acts 13:18 ends much the same way ― as patient Father, God endured their bad behavior, without weakening. “Endured,” not “enjoyed.”
All parents can identify with the word “endured.”
Next, look at the final words of Luke 6:35. There’s a progression there ― ungrateful, then selfish, and then wicked. Take a moment to think about that progression within human behavior.
Today’s Bible verses, and especially 1 Corinthians 13:7, might create gratitude within your heart.
Aren’t you glad that (1) your Father God positioned Himself as your Father, and then (2) takes His role as Father so seriously as to willingly “endure” not-so-perfect behavior?
38 For I am persuaded beyond doubt (am sure) that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things impending and threatening nor things to come, nor powers,
39 Nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
