I Corinthians 13:4-8 – Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
When praying and contemplating what the Lord would have me to write, there are times when He speaks resoundingly and other times in a small still voice. This particular week, it was neither so I am going to say what has been impressed on my heart today and that is love one another.
John 13:34-35 says, “a new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another” (NIV).
I believe each of us would be further in our walk with Christ if we learned how to love one another regardless of our disagreements or circumstances. Sometimes we are so busy pointing out the negative in others that we forget to simply love. We all know some people are harder to love than others, but without love we are nothing.
My prayer today is we love one another with the same love God has freely given us.
I love you!
