Boss Texts In Action

  • 1 Corinthians 13:4–7
    “Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” (NRSV)
  • 1 John 4:8
    “Whoever does not love does not know God, for God is love.” (NRSV)
  • Joshua 24:19
    “But Joshua said to the people, ‘You cannot serve the Lord, for he is a holy God. He is a jealous God; he will not forgive your transgressions or your sins.’” (NRSV)

1 Corinthians 13:4–7

  • Reasoning that Joshua is being metaphorical or hyperbolic to make a point.
