Love Is Patient, Love Is Kind

"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." I Corinthians 13:4-8

It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

Patience and kindness. These 2 virtues highlight the Christian experience, which is, above all, about love. Love of God, love of others, and yes, even love of oneself. For when we embrace the Christian life, that is what others hopefully see in us, that helps them know, definitively, that we are Christians. You see, Christianity is far beyond a multitude of rules and traditions. Simply put, really is all about love...

Nothing can take the place of love in a relationship. Absolutely nothing! For to love others generously and with complete abandon is to share our very best with them. In as much as God is love, we pour out on those in our lives the very best we have to offer, and, in turn, the Lord replenishes our supply matching, and even exceeding, what we have shared.

How blest are those who are able to love others freely and return to Jesus in prayer to replenish their supply! In a way, the Lord fills your cup, then you pass it on. Love was never meant to be kept to ourselves. For to love and be loved is a basic human function; and with that said, people need people to give and receive love!

I pray today that you can "feel the love" that comes your way this day, and that you know you are loved and lovable, just the way you are! Love is not perfection, rather, it is God himself beckoning you to reach out to Him and others in patience and with tender kindness. When shared through a process of caring for and about others, sublime kindness closely links us with the love of God and all that is good.
