What Is Love?: A 5-day study of 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8

"Love suffers long and is kind." We have heard these words before - love is patient and kind. Perhaps we saw it on a quote on social media or online, or in a shop on a t-shirt or coffee mug. Today’s society seems to be obsessed with the idea of loving others, but there’s a focus on a singular idea of what love is.

What is love? What is it, really? What does it mean to truly love someone? What does the phrase, “Love suffers long and is kind,” actually mean and how can we put this into practice and really love the people around us?

This 5-day devotional will take you through 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8. The print version has space for journaling!

After the death of his father, Myles was forced to move across the country with his mom. Now, they’re struggling to make ends meet, and while his mother seems to be healing, surrounded by her old high school friends, Myles is all alone. The loss of his dad has left him feeling empty, especially when he refuses to let himself grieve. On top of that, he’s living in a town where he doesn’t fit in.

Lizzie knows what it feels like to be living in a city while feeling like an outcast. Her father moved her and her family across the country and she misses her home as much as Myles misses his.

But her anger toward her father grows each day, since she wants to take over the family ranch back in Montana—a far cry from their new Californian home.

Yet the closer Lizzie gets to Myles, the more she sees just how much grief he’s hiding inside—grief that he won’t deal with. While Myles overwhelms himself working two jobs just to keep him and his mom financially afloat, Lizzie and her family are well off—more than financially secure. Despite their differences, though, Lizzie and Myles are drawn together by their faith and their shared loneliness and distaste for this town.

Children of Choas

Princess of Beasts

In the entire kingdom of Ahri, Princess Sahri is the only person who can talk to animals and heal them. She’s beloved by the people, but she’s living a lie. 

Deep inside, she wants a man who she’s not just forbidden to be with, but he’s also a criminal, part of the Ahri Reformation—using the Rune of Obedience to force criminals who fight well to put their talents to better use. What’s worse, is the man—her bodyguard, Jekre—hates her and the entire royal family for what they’ve done.

But those are the least of Sahri’s worries.

The Anati are creatures who bring life and springtime to Ahri every time they return from their long migration across the Sea. But when someone murders them, the kingdom faces a famine that will destroy them all.

Not all hope is lost—yet.

Two of the Anati had eggs. If Sahri can use her powers to keep the eggs long enough to help them get to the nesting grounds, the Anati will live. As the young ones grow, they can heal the land and save the kingdom and Sahri’s people.

The only problem is that her parents ordered her bodyguard to keep her inside the palace. The Rune of Obedience forces Jekre to comply—which means he’ll do whatever it takes to keep Sahri inside.

Who killed the Anati? The threat to the kingdom is a mystery, unknown by everyone except Jekre. And he’s been sworn to silence.

Can Sahri escape, and if she does, will she be able to get the eggs to the nesting ground in time?

Or will a famine bring Ahri to its knees?

King Vaxon is sadistic and cruel. After taking the crown of Castre for himself, he's finally squelched the rebellion of Magi who fought against him. The remaining ones will be thrown in an arena to fight to the death.

Vaxon knows it's unlikely they will fight each other at first. For this reason, he's sending his own son, Kyren, into the arena with them. As a powerful Dark Mage, Kyren's job is to kill the Magi. If he doesn’t, then his own father will kill his wife and children.

Kyren will do whatever it takes to keep his family alive. Even if that means he must die after slaughtering his own comrades. Is it possible to rebel in a fight you've already lost and still keep your families alive?

Light Magi

For years, Castre has governed itself apart from the Republic. But Vaxon’s War has left the land and its people weakened and in desperate need of aid. Now, many people feel it’s too late and don’t want the Republic involved. Kyren’s lost everything, but he’ll have to push aside his grief to be the king Castre needs him to be. Kyren’s forced to make a decision that will change his life forever, but he’s been shoved into a corner with no other way to keep his daughter safe.

Meanwhile, the Republic and the Magi are spread all across the galaxy, protecting people from men who crave power, just like Vaxon did. They’re on the brink of war and on top of that, one of the Magi Order’s own guilds has betrayed them. They’re now a Dark Guild, doing assassination contracts to kill innocent people. 

One of their targets is Ayka, one of the few Diplomats left in the Republic who still believes in the Father and who helps people more than she wants political power. Ayka’s life is now in the hands of the Magi, who place her in the protection of one of the most skilled Metal Mages in the galaxy. Falling for him and trying to get him out of his shell is difficult enough without adding in surviving the attempts on her life. Not to mention the people on Castre want the Republic to stay out of their affairs, but it’s Ayka’s job to represent them in the Republic Court.

While the best Guild in the entire Magi Order investigate an underground slave market, putting Zei Lin and his brother’s lives at risk, the Republic tries to avoid going to war with a race who wants nothing more than to see the Republic fall. A dark power is growing in the distant corners of the galaxy… with enough power to change the fate of the Republic and the Magi Order forever.
