1 Corinthians 13 - Christmas Version

Recommended Posts

This was posted on another group I belong to. Just thought I would share it with you:




By an unknown author


If I decorate my house perfectly with plaid bows, strands of twinkling

lights and shiny balls, but do not show love, I'm just another decorator.


If I slave away in the kitchen, baking dozens of Christmas cookies,

preparing gourmet meals and arranging a beautifully adorned table at

mealtime, but do not show love, I'm just another cook.


If I work at the soup kitchen, carol in the nursing home and give all

that I have to charity, but do not show love, it profits me nothing.


If I trim the spruce with shimmering angels and crocheted snowflakes,

attend a myriad of holiday parties and sing in the choir's cantata but do not

focus on Christ, I have missed the point.


Love stops the cooking to hug the child.

Love sets aside the decorating to kiss the husband.

Love is kind, though harried and tired.


Love doesn't envy another's home that has coordinated Christmas china and table linens.


Love doesn't yell at the kids to get out of the way, but is thankful they

are there to be in the way.


Love doesn't give only to those who are able to give in return but

rejoices in giving to those who can't.


Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all



Love never fails.


Video games will break, pearl necklaces will be lost, golf clubs will

rust, but giving the gift of love will endure.



With love to you all - Snowy xx 8)
