1st Corinthians 13-The Christmas Version

1 CORINTHIANS 13- THE CHRISTMAS VERSION
If I decorate my house perfectly with plaid bows, strands of twinkling lights and shiny balls, but do not show love to my family, I’m just “another decorator”
If I slave away in the kitchen, baking dozens of Christmas cookies preparing gourmets meals and arranging a beautifully adorned table at meal time, but do not show love to my family, I’m just “another cook”.
If I work at the soup kitchen, carol in the nursery home and give all that I have to charity, but do not show love to my family, it profits me nothing.
If I trim the spruce with shimmering angels and crocheted snowflakes, attend myriad holiday parties and sing in the choir’s cantata but do not focus on Christ, I have missed the point.
Love stops the cooking to hug the child.
Love sets aside decorating to kiss the husband.
Love is kind, though you are harried and tired.
Love doesn’t envy another’s home that has co-ordinated Christmas china and table linens.
Love doesn’t yell at the kids to get out of the way, but is thankful they are there to be in the way.
Love doesn’t give only to those who are able to give in return but rejoices in giving to those who can’t.
Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things.
Love never fails.
Video games will break, pearl necklaces will be lost, golf clubs will rust, but giving the gift of love will endure.
Merry Christmas and lots of love to you and yours!
