Love knows no limit to its endurance, no end to its trust, no fading of its hope; it can outlast anything. It is, in fact, the one thing that still stands when all else has fallen. 1 Corinthians 13:7-8 JBP

Thought

Love is the one thing that still stands when all else has fallen. You find the spiritual basis of durable love in the biblical assurance that God is love. If you know that God is love and that God ordains love, then you believe that love can outlast anything. The love you shared with your loved one transcends the event of death. This is the absolute power of love.

Prayer

God, your love has held me up through grief and keeps me from falling. I am grateful that your love is infinite and forever. Amen. Assurance: Love has no limits.

Assurance

Love has no limits.
