Wisdom From the Word
“But if I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy don’t love, I’m nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate… So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.
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…” – I Corinthians 13:1, 7 a (The Message)
Keep Me Real, Lord!
“Lord, as a single person, help me to be wise and discerning in my dating relationships.Whether I find myself single or married, continue to transform my character so that my interactions with others are loving. I will do the hard work of watching my words, refusing to make excuses, and setting boundaries on my unloving judgments, assumptions, and actions. Help me to be an empowering presence rather than an overpowering presence in people’s lives.”
