The Wedding Poem
The Bible says in 1st Corinthians 13: 4-8 says; Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
Will you be patient and kind. Will you be jealous or content, will you boast and be proud, will you be cordial, will you be selfish, will you be provoked or grudgeful. Will you rejoice in iniquity or in the truth. Will you believe in, hope and endure all things. Will you ever fail.
But, you are not love, you have love. The real question is, will your love have, be and do all these things.
As long as you have happiness, peace, faith, love and GOD, you will have the greatest love of all.
