The Love Test

There are some people who talk about love all the time but it seems they want everyone around them to give in to their will.

What Does The Bible Say?

I Corinthians 13:4-8 says… “Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful; it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrong but rejoices in the right. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends; as for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.”

From this scripture, we have a test to identify true love. 

1. Love is patient.

2. Love is kind.

3. Love is never arrogant.

4. Love is never rude.

5. Love does not insist on its own way.

6. Love is never irritable.

7. Love is never resentful.

8. Love does not rejoice at wrongs.

9. Love rejoices in the right.

10. Love bears all things.

11. Love believes all things.

12. Love always endures.

13. Love never ends. 

Now that we have identified what love is, take this little test. On each line substitute your name for the word ‘love’.
