Love Is Like a Diamond

Love is patient, love is kind. Love does not envy, is not boastful, is not arrogant. —1 Corinthians 13:4

One thing that makes a diamond beautiful is that it has so many facets. You keep seeing new reflections as you look at it from different angles. That’s a lot like love.

The apostle Paul helps us see true, godly love from various angles in 1 Corinthians 13. He talks about fifteen different characteristics of love, as if he’s holding a diamond up to the light.

I know that the diamond of my love life has some cracks and flaws. God’s Word is like a magnifying glass, showing me areas where
I need to be refined. When we are willing to let the Master Cutter examine us under that microscope, He’ll help us become more and more beautiful.

With that in mind, take an in-depth look at 1 Corinthians 13. Ask the Master Cutter to help you look at this passage with fresh eyes, that He might work it into your heart and bring out every bit of brilliance in your love life.
