Rock Solid; Love Never Fails

In equals shares God grants today
His power undeterred
Evil will always have its say
But not the final Word

Fear is a demon not from God
In whom we ought to trust
The ignorance that fools applaud
Will reckon with The Just

Then when we cry, what can we do
Where evil touts its plan
The age-old answer remains true
In, 'love your fellowman'

All else but Love is doomed to fail
God in the end will prove
His way is indomitable
And all will fail but Love

© Janet Martin

Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. 
Outdo yourselves in honoring one another.…

Scripture does not say 'detest who is evil, but what is evil'
We are called to 'hate the sin and love the sinner'
just as God loves us!
("A new command I give you: Love one another. 
As I have loved you, so you must love one another.)
John 13:34

1 Timothy 1:5
The goal of our instruction is the love that comes from a pure heart, 
a clear conscience, and a sincere faith.

Matthew 5:44
But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,

Romans 13:10
Love does no wrong to its neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the Law.

Love never fails. 
But where there are prophecies, they will cease; 
where there are tongues, they will be stilled; 
where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
1 Cor.13:8
