The pattern of our love

cf 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Love is patient, love is kind,
never purposefully blind,
tastes ridicule and rebuff,
but has no pretence, or bluff,
hypocrisy or discontent,
and no envious intent,
won’t to jealousy give in,
is not proud, or centred in
‘me’, will not show off, or boast,
not self-seeking, grabbing most;
love’s not rude, and does not brood,
is not quickly drawn to anger,
does not delight to point the finger,
tries past hurts to ‘not remember’,
isn’t pleased with evil, slander,
glad of truth, and works for good,
perseveres, protects, – love should
always be like this, but we
often fail so miserably.
