Sometimes I’m probably the most unlovable person on the planet. Other times, I am the most adored, well in my world anyway.
The days that I am the most unlovable, you should probably be praying for my sweet husband. Why is it that we lash out at those we love the most? A very wise woman once told me that it was because we trust them the most. We trust them to love us no matter how good our bad we may behave.
Is that fair? NO WAY! Does it stop us? Sadly, no. Sometimes it is other people who are in the wrong. What then? I need to walk in love! Always! But, there are days that I don’t feel like I even know what love looks like.
But I do. I have a beautiful guide of what love looks like. So I’m going to leave this with you today…..
“Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, it is not boastful or vainglorious and does not display itself haughtily. It is not conceited, arrogant, nor inflated with pride; it is not rude or unmannerly and does not act unbecomingly. Love does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy, fretful, or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it and pays no attention to a suffered wrong. It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail. Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything without weakening. Love never fails, never fades out, or becomes obsolete, or comes to an end.”
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
