"Love never fails." I Corinthians 13:8

What sort of a claim is that? Does this verse mean that if I love I will never make a mistake?

Are you kidding? Of course not.

So, then does it mean that if I love I will be successful at everything I try?


Well, is it promising that I will be right every time?

Dream on!

Does it mean that because I love golf I will par every hole on the course?

Are you serious?

Will I bowl a 300 game if I love bowling enough?

Get you mind out of the gutter!

Then what does it mean that love never fails if it doesn't mean any of those things?

What it means is that when I love with the love of God I will never fail to love! I will always do the loving thing. I will continue loving when I feel like it and when I don't. I will respond with love even when I have been rejected or when I have been hurt.

Love never fails because God is love and when you draw upon Him for love it will always be given.

There is no person or not circumstance that you will ever face where you cannot respond with love.

If you fail to love it is because your love for God has failed. If you love Him with an unfailing love and live in an unbroken relationship with Him your love will never fail because His never does!

Want a fail-safe love? Struggling with love? Find it difficult to be loving?

God has all the love you need. Don't fail to take it and use it!
