Genuine Love

Genuine Love

In real love, patience will be evident,
Generosity, not envy, its bent.
Boasting advertises one’s emptiness,
But growing love begets forgetfulness.

Courtesy - oil in my relationships,
Does no recording of past wrongs or slips.
Real love’s joy is robbed by cynicism.
There’s no delight in anyone’s schism.

Love is consistent and never gives up,
Not just occasional, but my life’s cup.
I’m just a beginner in learning love.
Lord, fill me and renew me from above. 

1 Corinthians 13
