Golden Text | I John 4:8 God is
. . . God is love.
Responsive Reading | I Corinthians 13:1, 2, 4–13

4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does
not parade itself, is not puffed up;
5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked,

endures all things.
8 Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they

13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the
greatest of these is love.
