God never fails.

4. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8 Love never fails. (1 Corinthians 13:4-8a)

I believe that in this passage, Paul is not just talking about how Christians should view love. Paul is describing God.  These are the characteristics that most resemble God.  You could change the word "love" to "God" and you will understand the beauty of God.

God is patient. No matter how often we fail, God will always give us another chance.

God is kind. God only wants to be there for us.

God does not envy.  God will always take us back if we turn away from him.

God does not boast.  God speaks in a whisper.  We need to quiet ourselves in order to hear him.

God is not proud. God will do whatever is necessary to win our love.

God does not dishonor others.  God honors each one of us and comes to meet us where we are.

God is not self-seeking.  God only wants what is best for us.

God is not easily angered.  Despite what many may say about God being vengeful, he suffers alot of abuse and returns it with compassion and understanding.

God does not keep records of wrongdoings.  If he did, we would all be in alot of trouble.  God forgives and then forgets and continues to hope that we will not continue to make the same mistakes over and over again. 

God does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. God is truth and when we recognize the truth that is God, he and all of heaven rejoices. 

God always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  God wants to be there for us; he trusts in our ability to live our lives as his beloved children; he hopes that we will make the right choices; and if we fail God will always help us to get up and try again.

God never fails.  We can always count on God to be there when we need him.  There will never be a time when God will turn away from us.  There will never be a time when God does not love us. There will never be a time when God will not try to help us find what is best for us. 

Thank God that God is God.
