I don't read bible verses too often, though a few that I have read have stuck with me. This verse is my absolute favorite and one I dedicate to my kids. I hope that they can look back at growing up and think that is the love that they felt from me.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
