Last week I completed a Bible Study on 1 Corinthians 13:4-7:
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices w/the truth.
It always protects, alays trusts, always hopes always perserveres.”
These verses spoke to me loud and clear!
I realized that me loving someone isn’t based on how they act or the current status of our relationship.
Love goes past hurt feelings and disappointments, to honestly and earnestly, pray for others.
Love thinks and expects the best for people even when they speak against you.
Love is kind and authentic even when others are short and are playing the avoidance game.
Love is humble and willing to apologize and ask for forgiveness no matter how uncomfortable it may be.
Overall, I learned that me loving like Christ doesn’t depend on the actions of others…it’s about me seeing others the way God does.
My plan is to love at all costs…what about you?
