The Bible’s “Love Thermometer”

February 16, 2014

The thirteenth chapter of St. Paul’s First Letter to the Corinthians is often called the “love chapter” in the Bible. The beginning and ending of this chapter present love as the bottom line of existence. The middle verses of the chapter, which are shown in the pictures in this posting and the video embedded below, could be called the Bible’s “love thermometer.” They give a description of love, and in so doing, give us an excellent way of taking our “spiritual temperature,” to see how well we’re following Our Lord’s New Commandment to love one another as he has loved us (see John 15:12). If we insert our name wherever the words “love” or “it” occur in this part of 1 Corinthians 13, the degree to which the statements remain true in our dealings with our spouses and families, and all others, shows the degree to which we’re living in love. May our hearts, having been turned from stone to flesh, show themselves to be filled with the warmth of life!
