    Smile 1 Corinthians 13: Christmas Style

    I Corinthians: Christmas Style

    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 gourmet meals and arranging a beautifully adorned table at
    mealtime,
    But do not show love to my friends and family,
    I'm just another cook.

    If I work at the soup kitchen, carol in the nursing home and give
    all
    that I have to charity,
    But do not show love to my friends and loved ones,
    It profits me nothing.

    If I trim the spruce with shimmering angels and crocheted
    snowflakes,
    Attend a myriad of 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 the decorating to kiss the husband.

    Love is kind, though harried and tired.

    Love doesn't envy another's home that has coordinated
    Christmas china and table linens.

    Love doesn't yell at the kids to get out of 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,
    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 forever.
