Real love // 13-06-19

“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.” 1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:4-7‬ ‭NLT‬‬

How do we know if love is flowing from us to each other? Well Paul gives us this really helpful checklist of what real love looks like! In all my interactions with others I need to ask myself, am I showing love here? Are my words seasoned with love? Do my actions have love as their motive? Is love shaping my attitude? Lord, even with the irritations, hurts and offences that come from being involved with others, help me to love well, free my heart to feel your love and to love like You. Amen 🙏🏼
