If area pastors were surveyed as to what Scripture text they used most when performing weddings, 1 Corinthians 13 would rank high on the list. It’s certainly one of my favorites. If verses 4 through 8 were applied regularly in marriage, divorce rates today would decrease dramatically.
Please accept my challenge inviting you to email your personal contemporary paraphrase from 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. As a close friend advised, I’ve bumped the limit to around 70 words or fewer; attach your own interpretation of what these verses say about God’s love, as expressed in our lives today. As space allows, some reader contributions will run alongside my remaining February columns; for an example, see the box included with today’s column.
