What remains in the end

Love Bible verses

I Corinthians 13, from The Message
“We don’t yet see things clearly.
We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist.
But it won’t be long before the weather clears
And the sun shines bright!
We’ll see it all then,
See it all as clearly as God sees us,
Knowing him directly just as he knows us!
But for right now, until that completeness,
We have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation . . .

Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly.
And the best of the three is love.”
Or say it this way:
“And now these three remain: Faith, Hope & Love.
But the greatest of these is Love.”

Photo backstory: I probably should have posted this graphic last week. But since it never stops snowing in my state (New York) and love never ends, I figured it wasn’t too late to share :) I created the graphic with an image from my account at rgbstock photos and the magic of PicMonkey. (Feel free to Pin, Tweet, download & share.)
