Memory Verse #14

Extravagant Grace
I've taken a break from the internet, blogworld, and facebook for the last few weeks so I could focus on getting some things accomplished like cleaning, organizing, visiting with friends and family, cake decorating classes, and doing 2 Bible studies. So I have some catching up to do with my blogs.
First and foremost, it's time to post my next memory verse. This marks the completion of memorizing 1 Corinthians 13 (The LOVE Chapter). I'm not there yet, but I am consciously trying to show more love, more patience, and more kindness.
1 Corinthians 13

(verses 1-3)
If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have the faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.

(verses 4-5)
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

(verses 6-7)
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

(verses 8-10)
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. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears.

(verses 11-13)
When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put awy childish things. Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.

What verse are you hiding in your heart right now? I'd love to hear it!
