Today, the world tells us to insist on our way. They give us permission to become easily angered and easily offended. The world tells us to keep a record of wrongs. The world tells us it is ok to refuse to take responsibility. The world is full of blame, excuses, and demands. God’s children, however, should be responding differently.
One of the Traits of a True Believer is LOVE. It is a trait that shouldn’t have to be announced but be known by our actions. If our words are critizing others, demanding our own way, are loud, resentful, and condemning than we are not KNOWN by our love.
The Way of Love
Love is patient and kind;
Love does not envy or boast;
It is not arrogant or rude.
It does not insist on its own way;
It is not irritable or resentful;
It does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.
Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never ends.
~ 1 Corinthians 13 ~
