The Exact Opposite of 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (A Fresh Look at a Familiar Passage)

Love is not impatient.

Love is not mean.

Love is content.

It is modest.

It is humbly confident.

It honors others.

It is selfless.

It is extraordinarily calm.

It lets go of offenses.

Love delights in goodness but mourns over falsity.

It never endangers, never suspects, never loses hope, never quits.

Love always triumphs.

  1. Thanks, it’s neat to read the passage inverted!
    It is impossible for me to imagine a world where love as defined here is fully practiced by everyone. It is even harder for me to imagine a marriage in which this definition of love is practiced even 10% of the time. Especially “letting go of offenses”, haha. As for “extraordinarily calm”, that would be such a lovely thing… nonetheless, I meditate on this passage every day.
