Never?

1 Corinthians 13:1.8a 1If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2If 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 have not love, I am nothing. 3If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.8Love never fails.

Never.  But it’s as hard as you can imagine.  Love will take you to the edge of a cliff and it might even show you the ledge you’ll have to hang onto when you get dropped.  Love may or may not pack a parachute – and would you trust someone else to pack yours anyway.  Love is a noun and a verb…but calling love an emotion or feeling is cheapening it to the point of lying.  Love never fails, but love is really, really hard.  Enjoy.
