1 Corinthians 13:4

The Lord has had me dissecting, chewing, digesting and absorbing several Scriptures.
This is the first verse of the first Scripture.

"Love endures (bears without resistance) long (having considerable duration in time)
 and is patient (bearing provocation, annoyance, misfortune, delay, hardship, pain, etc. with fortitude and calm and without complaint or anger) 
and is kind (indulgent, considerate, or helpful; humane);
love never is envious ( a feeling of discontent or covetousness with regard to another's advantages, success, possessions, etc.;  ill will.)
nor boils over with jealousy (feeling resentment against someone because of that person's rivalry, success, or advantages; characterized by or proceeding from suspicious fears or envious resentment),
is not boastful (to speak of with excessive pride or vanity)
or vainglorious (excessive elation or pride over one's own achievements, abilities, etc.; boastful vanity)
 it does not display itself haughtily (disdainfully proud; snobbish; scornfully arrogant)."

1 Corinthians 13:4
(I have added the dictionary definitions).

More passages soon to follow...

Bon appétit!
