1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Charity suffers long, and is kind; charity envies not; charity braggs not itself, is not puffed up,…
I. THE SELF-COMMAND OF LOVE. Under passion it is —
1. Cool, not passionate.
2. Calm, not stolid.
3. Patient, not peevish.
4. Serious, not sarcastic.
5. Forgiving, not resentful.
II. THE SECRET OF ITS POWER — humility, enlightenment, pity for the offender, steadfast reliance on God.
(J. Lyth, D.D.)
