"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres" 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
How does one love like this? How do I get to a place where I can love fully without my own selfishness or lack of patience trying to throw things off track? I would like to think that I live up to the standards God has placed before us in the scripture but I know I don't. I fall short, as do many. But why? What causes us/me to do this? Besides the fact that we are human and we are not perfect.
Oh how I wish I could love others the way God loves me. I am most certainly a work in progress. Any chance we can speed this process up, Lord? It would be much appreciated.
