Prophecies, tongues and knowledge
will cease, be stilled and pass away.
Yet love and honey in eternal harmony
for they alone have no expiry date.
However, the root is all important.
Motive is prime.
Selfish love is soon exposed
while God’s love is sustained
in light and in darkness.
Living in love is a steadfast choice.
It doesn’t wilt in desert heat
or is blown off course by prevailing winds.
Never tempted by resplendent flowers
or flattering babbling brooks.
It stands firm on God’s Word
and imitates God’s character.
It’s here today and forever.
Jesus, You are love.
You never fail.
You always overcome
and You love me!
Oh Love, God’s love, it’s all I’ll ever need.
