Pottery is the craft, but the Glazing is my Art.
1 John 4:8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
1 Samuel 16:7 But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the LORD does not see as man sees;[a] for man looks at the outward appearance, but the
LORD (YHWH) looks at the heart.”
Footnotes: 1 Samuel 16:7
Septuagint reads, "For God does not see as man sees;"
Targum reads, "It is not by the appearance of a man;"
Vulgate reads, "Nor do I judge according to the looks of a man."
'If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.
If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.
If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
* Love is patient,
* love is kind.
* It does not envy,
* it does not boast,
* it is not proud.
* It does not dishonor others,
* it is not self-seeking,
* it is not easily angered,
* it keeps no record of wrongs.
* Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
* It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.;
* Love never fails.
But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues,
they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes,
what is in part disappears.
When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child.
When I became a man (woman), I put the ways of childhood behind me.
For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face.
Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love.
But the greatest of these is love.' 1 Corinthians 13.
Love one other!! Jesus came to show us how to live, through LOVE, and to have HOPE.
No matter how it is written, We are to live with others in mind, whether you have nothing or everything,
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us.
And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.1 John 3:16
