Not Your Way, Love's Way
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.—1 Corinthians 13:4-5
We explain intangible attributes by describing what that attribute looks like in action. And love has specific, actionable characteristics. For example, it is patient and kind. Additionally, it is helpful to describe what actionable characteristics it does not have. And love, in comparison to self-centered attributes, is not envious, boastful, arrogant, rude, irritable, or resentful.
So which list was more helpful for you? And why?
Could it be that we understand the characteristics of which love is not better than those that love is? If so, learn to love more by letting God love you. Experience his love, and you will know true love. And then act in that same love with those around you.
DO THIS: Love God and love people.
PRAY THIS: God, help me to love better. Help me love those who hate me and hate my beliefs—and those I respectfully disagree with.
