Sorry I am a late........been a busy week. lol
I was struck by these scriptures once again as we
read them in our quiet time this week.
So really felt to share them and expound on them
just a bit because today we hear a lot about Love
or the lack thereof these days.
I think a lot of people in our world are mislead
about what Love really is and tend to think it
is just a bunch of zingy feelings or about being happy
all the time, or that it is just feeling loving about
someone, although there is nothing wrong with any
of that, but we can't live by our feelings because
our feelings change all the time. Love is really an
action word. We are suppose to show people our
love by the things God says in this passage of
scripture, and of course, there are other ways as well.
but I am just gonna talk right now, about this one
passage of scripture.
In our house we believe that Love is a choice each
and every day. We can choose to Love.
I love that God's word is pretty clear about what
Love is and what it isn't.
So according to 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8 NIV
Love is patient
Love is Kind
Love does not envy
Love does not boast
Love is not proud.
Love does not dishonor others
Love is not Self-seeking
Love is not easily angered
Love keeps no record of wrongs
Love does not delight in evil
Love rejoices with the truth
Love always protects
Love always trusts,
Love always hopes
Love always perseveres
Love never fails
I broke it down the way I did because I was doing
this scripture for someone's wedding a few years ago
and I had to break it down into sentences like that,
and it really made such an impact on me, and thought
it might for you as well.
Now am I telling you I do this perfectly, of course
not, but I have certainly improved over the years,
and would I like to do it perfectly...absolutely.....
Cause there is nothing that shows the Love of God
more than loving others. I think we will be in the
process of learning to love until we go home to be
with the Lord...but I find it a good thing, to at
least to know what it looks like from God's
perspective. as it helps move us more toward
the goal of loving God and our families, friends,
and others more.
Hope you had a Sweet Sunday and
Today is a Merry Monday!
