1 Corinthians 13:4-7
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 have 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,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end.
Lord, please help me to be self-controlled today! please help me to keep from 'flying off the handle' at my family today! Help me to show them LOVE! YOUR LOVE! not some distorted version of my own love for them. help me to LOVE today. everyday. but, especially...TODAY. i must start with TODAY!
