Love as a response

Love as a Response




1 Corinthians 13:4-8

 

New Living Translation (NLT)

 4 Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud 5 or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. 6 It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. 7 Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.

 8 Prophecy and speaking in unknown languages and special knowledge will become useless. But love will last forever!

 

Dear Woman of God,

Our love walk is challenged daily by the people who surround us. Just as we set our clocks to awake us each day, we must set our hearts to love each day. We must pre-select love as our response for every situation we will face each day. We must look to God’s Word for instructions on how to choose to love. We must choose love as the only response to any situation that is thrown our way. God commands it and demonstrates it with His response to us. When we choose to love those who mistreat, abuse or cause us pain, we choose peace and we choose God’s best! The enemy wants us to hold grudges and harbor hatred and un-forgiveness in our hearts. Everything we do must begin and end with love because God is love and love is of God. We encourage you to set your heart to choose love!
