There is never reason to be unkind. There may be reason to disagree with someone, but there is never reason to be unkind.
Love is always patient. Love is always kind. Love does not envy or boast and is not proud. It doesn’t dishonor others. It is not selfish. It is not easily angered. IT KEEPS NO RECORD OF WRONGS.It seeks out the truth.
I realized today that love is impossible. LOVE is impossible. The word is tossed around way too much — I love ice-cream, I love this song, I love you.
I’ve been looking through old photo albums, watching old home videos, and just mind-blown at how families work. How can two imperfect people 1) decide they love each other and want to spend the rest of their lives together and 2) decide they want to bring a child into the world and raise him/her to become a good person (or just a lover of God) and responsible contributor to society? Such big decisions that require a love that is humanly impossible.
I forgot how hard it is to live at home. I always forget! Sigh. I need God’s love. I need Jesus. I know I am severely lacking! I know I am not perfect. I know I am not beautiful. There are many things I am not; there are few things that I do well. But all the more glory to Jesus, right?
Jesus, show me what love looks like. Oh, You totally did. We have no excuse because He demonstrated perfect love to us. Love is sacrifice. Love is laying down your life for your friend, your brother, your sister, your enemy. Love is patient, love is kind.
