LOVE Keeps No Record of Wrongs

I’m talking about LOVE…what it IS and what it is NOT.  Last week, I started to unpack 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 starting with, “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.”  If you missed that, you can click here to check it out.

This week?  Oh my goodness, slap. my. face. I’ve got some work to do in the L O V E category.  Here’s what LOVE is NOT, “It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.”

…O U C H

I’m giving myself grace, yes I am.  I’m grateful for this awareness and the opportunity to look at how I can love better. love bigger.

I can be rude. selfish. angry.  I can keep records of wrongs. {I’m really good at doing that with some, unfortunately it’s with those closest to me.}

What I’m realizing is this, my wounds prevent me from loving like “that” — like 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 — when I’m un-loving, that’s my sign, my prompting to  shine a light into my heart and uncover what’s going on with me.

How are you doing with what love. is. not?  Are you loving like 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 — what action can you take to move towards loving like that?
