Love Never Fails

I awoke this morning with a slightly different perspective on what I thought to be the truth (Proverbs 21:2 KJV). You know, it is like when you have said something over and over again and you think you understand it but then while walking that familiar path you turn the corner and found someone changed that dim street lamp and all what wasn't seen becomes clear (Psalm 119:105 KJV).

I have written about love before from a woman's perspective, how I understand what men think and from the Word of God. I wrote about divorce in a Christian home  and why God hates it. I wrote about seed being sown in a marriage on the analogy of a farmer sowing into good ground with the expectation of a harvest and how this applies to men being the leaders of the household. I even tried to make clear when a man speaks harshly to the woman of his children, she cannot truly believe that in spite of those brutal words that he is still and excellent father.

On the basis of marriage, there must be a sure foundation. This foundation is the practice of love. Love is clearly defined in the bible (1 Corinthians 13:1-8 AMP). There is no misunderstanding in interpretation of this biblical definition. Then a passage that takes the structure of Corinthians and solidifies it with God is love (1 John 4:16 AMP).

Now what? How can one easily tell another that you love this person with that kind of definition that you just read? How can love be blind? How can you fall in and out of it? How can you divorce with that understanding knowing that divorce is a failure of a marriage? How can one profess Christianity when there is no failure in God?

Who do you love (Revelation 2:3-5 AMP)?
