Daily Words of Hope
First Corinthians Chapter 13 talks about love in a very descriptive manner, the apostle Paul characterizes love in many ways, patient, kind, long suffering, nonjudgmental, but even the apostle Paul was unable to define love with one word. But let’s say that we know that love at its minimum is patient, kind and nonjudgmental.
From the children’s hymn we know that Jesus loves us but we often view God as this mean person judging us from afar, who uses every opportunity to scold us, but if God loves us, then we should find peace knowing that God is patient, kind and long suffering.
Sometimes it is hard for us to think of God as loving because we encounter people in our lives that represent everything but a loving spirit, but we should not let these people dictate our views of God, self and humanity.
God’s love for us is patient kind and long suffering, simply God will stick with you even when you feel Unlovable. God’s patient Love shouldn’t be an excuse to live lives that’s hurt others and ourselves. Be wise don’t take advantage of God’s love. We shouldn’t live good lives, because of fear only. Yes, the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom but not the end.
As Paul stated the greatest of all is Love. Live right because you Love God, yourself and others. Push forward regardless of your mistakes because you understand that God’s love is patient and one mistake wouldn’t cause God to give up on you.
Love is Powerful; use its power to live a better life.
