1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Charity suffers long, and is kind; charity envies not; charity braggs not itself, is not puffed up,…
I. LOVE IS UNSELFISH.
1. Seeketh not her own honour, pleasure, advantage.
2. Inordinately, injuriously, mainly.
II. IS, ON THE CONTRARY, SELF-SACRIFICING.
1. In its endeavours to benefit others.
2. Which is the very essence of love, as exemplified by Christ.
(J. Lyth, D.D.)
