Love suffers long
and is kind;
love does not envy;
love does not parade itself,
is not puffed up;
does not behave rudely,
does not seek its own,
is not provoked,

does not rejoice in iniquity,

bears all things,
believes all things,
hopes all things,
endures all things.
Love never fails……
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
