Truths about Love to Ponder:
There are two versions to ponder. The following quotes are from two different translations of the bible:
The first is from a fairly new translation called “The Message!”
The second is from the New International Version
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 ae 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,
Trust God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end.
The New International Version”
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy,
it does not boast, it is not proud.
It does not dishonor others,
it is not self-seeking,
it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects,
Love never fails.
I know this all sounds beyond our ability to accomplish…..but remember, living in Love, these attributes are what we are striving for. They are worthwhile goals. Remember none of us can do anything perfectly…..but all of us can be willing, to be willing, to be willing, to move in this direction. With God we will do our very best and accomplish more than we think we can.
If this doesn’’t stir up some questions and/or comments nothing I write will.
Remember to Feed You Soul!!!
Love & Blessings Galore!!!
