'Love never fails' is a very strong statement. It stands alongside, 'The Word of the Lord stands forever' (1 Peter 1:25). God, His character, His Word, His love are indestructible (1 Timothy 1:17). But everything we see in our world will fail. The bodies of plants, animals and humans die; political leaders and their power come and go; buildings crumble and landscapes erode. Everything in this world is temporary, including the world itself. Even churches and ministries arise and some decline. But nothing can destroy divinely inspired love.
