Why 1 Corinthians 13 is Impossible

Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. ~ 1 Corinthians 13:4-8a

1 Corinthians 13 is most often presented as the warm-and-fuzzy, hug-your-neighbor, have-some-chocolate-and-a-card Bible passage. How far that is from the truth! 
When I read 1 Corinthians 13, I see a definition of biblical love that demonstrates it’s perfection and completeness in Jesus Christ. 
I see love that is impossible for us to carry out. 
Join me at The Road to 31 where I flesh out what this means in our lives today. Especially on Valentine’s Day. 🙂
