Discussion Questions:

Consider Paul’s description of love. How is this love seen in the life of Jesus?

Why do you think Paul took time out from his teaching about gifts and church order (Ch.12 & Ch.14) to speak about love?

Choose an aspect of love you find particularly challenging. Why is it challenging? What is your hope in that challenge?

What incentive does Paul give us to persevere in the way of love in v.8-13? What might it look like for you to persevere in the way of love this week?
