Weekly Words 1-31-10 Spiritual Sundays
I was so tickled when my daughter shared that she went to church today! My heart is overflowing with joy. I have been praying for more of Christ's influence in their busy lives. It tickles me pink to know that she will continue to grow in her relationship with Christ. Her husband may be dragged along for now, but he is a good man and I know his big heart will only grow with more God in his life.
1Co 13:13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
It's an easy verse to spend time on. I will try to find ways to express faith, hope, and love. Maybe by doing what pastor suggested this morning that I substitute my name for the word love in the earlier verses.
1Co 13:4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
1Co 13:5 It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
1Co 13:6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
1Co 13:7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Deb is patient, Deb is kind. She does not envy, she does not boast, she is not proud. Deb is not rude, she is not self-seeking, she is not easily angered, she keeps no record of wrongs. Deb does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. Deb always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Lofty goals to make that truth! Especially when the "patient" word is the first description. I will spend time praying on this, for sure!
