The Love Chapter Challenge

(1 Corinthians 13)

How do you score? Have you read or heard these words in Corinthians, known as The Love Chapter?


1 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a noisy gong or a clashing cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have absolute faith so as to move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no account of wrongs. 6 Love takes no pleasure in evil, but rejoices in the truth. 7 It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I set aside childish ways. 12 Now we see but a dim reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

13 And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love; but the greatest of these is love.


The Apostle Paul is virtually telling us we can gauge our walk this way and how we need to Grow as a Child of God.

Like other Pages in this Web-Menu on Inspired In Christ, I have a few Checklists for you, based on the above Scripture Verses

with a wider application - some practical ways we can work on those, to simplify things, so it is applicable for us.

It's a good exercise. I come to this Page sometimes to review my personal Walk with Christ.

You are welcome to do the same.


These used to be in the form of Polls but I thought I's make it more personal.

This way, you can print this Page if you like and tick the items that apply or give them a 1 to 5 rating 

(in pencil) and see your progress as often as you decide to do so.
