LOVE IS PATIENT,
Love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
LOVE NEVER FAILS.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
THIS IS PERFECT LOVE!
IT IS what love should look like. The type of love we should demonstrate and strive for.
These words have always touched my heart deeply.
They are PERFECT and BEAUTIFUL!
BUT if we’re honest, who among us can show this type of love without stumbling from time to time? We are not perfect human beings, and so these are BIG SHOES TO FILL!
So, what are we to do?
WE TRY OUR PERSONAL BEST!
Think about this: rather than trying to show perfection, why can’t we commit to be the best version of ourselves? Why can’t we be THAT PERSON that shows love with a spirit of kindness and humility? Why can’t we offer our help when we can and as often as we can? Show our support in times of need. GIVE of our hearts freely and without fear. Say the words “I LOVE YOU” every chance we get. Why can’t we be THAT PERSON who demonstrates love with PURE and HONEST motives!
I WANT TO BE THAT PERSON!
And when others think of this very POWERFUL four letter word, MY HOPE is that in some small way my name will come to mind.
