Patience. Endurance. LOVE

"Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things." - 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

-when you are agitated
-when you are aggravated
-when life let's you down
-when the family's around
-whether with church or with job
-or in midst of the mob
-when you spar with your spouse
-when your spouse spars with you
-no matter what you do
-do it in love

1 Corinthians 13 is such a beautiful truth, and beautifully written, that truly applies to every aspect of our lives! Certainly, Paul was speaking to the church in Corinth. But about what? There was immorality and infighting. He charged the church.. to love, to endure all things, for the sake and cause of Christ. Surely still a more than applicable message in our daily lives ...of political frustration, religious pastels, and ever mounting pressure on the family core. Read this with fresh eyes today. Apply it to your heart. Next time you feel ready to spar ...remember... Patience. Endurance. LOVE.
