1. If 1 Corinthians 13 isn't specifically about marital love, how might its teachings apply more broadly to other relationships and aspects of life?
2. When the use of spiritual gifts in the church is not based in love, what happens? What attitudes or behaviours show up and how does this affect a church community?
3. Is treating your fellow believers with love an obligation? Why or why not? How might you show love even when you don't feel it?
4. Share time when you've seen someone do something good out of obligation rather than love. How might the outcome or experience have been different if love were the primary motivation?
5. How does the statement "Love isn’t a noun, it’s a verb" resonate with your own experiences of love in action?
6. Reflect on the idea that "love is enduring." Can you think of a time when enduring love has been evident in your own life or in the lives of others? How did that impact the situation or relationship?
7. The author asks, "What is your walk showing?" Reflect on this question in the context of your own life. How does your behaviour demonstrate the love described in 1 Corinthians 13?
