Love

  IMG_1250

Around this time of year our thoughts turn to LOVE. God knew what He was doing when He began this whole thing of love. It literally has made our world go around. God knew a lot of things didn’t He? He even left us a love letter in His word. Find it in I Corinthians 13. Hear it in Peterson’s translation.

Love never gives up.

Love cares more for others than for self.

Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.

Love doesn’t strut,

Doesn’t have a swelled head, 

Doesn’t force itself on others,

Isn’t always “me first,”

Doesn’t fly off the handle,

Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others, 

Doesn’t revel when others grovel, 

Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,

Puts up with anything,

Trusts God always,

Always looks for the best,

Never looks back,

But keeps going to the end.

Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of these is LOVE.
