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.

~ 1 Corinthians 13

  • Printer (or pen for writing scripture on vellum paper)
  • Ribbon or Tassel

  3. Trim the paint sample card to be slightly bigger than the Vellum paper size.
  4. Lay the paint sample card and vellum paper together, and punch a hole through both at the top.

Discussion

Faith is believing in Jesus and knowing that He will do what’s best for us.  Hope is knowing that we will be with Jesus in Heaven.  And God is love! Love never ends. 

Love thinks good things, and if you are thinking good things, you will do good things.  If you love someone or something, you never stop trying. Love is patient, willing to listen and takes the time to pay attention.  Slow down and see if there’s something you can do to help someone “¦ You show your love by how you act and treat others!
