Sunday we talked about love, and as we welcome in the Year of the Pig and Valentines Day is around the corner, love is in the air.
The Apostle Paul wrote words on love, and although these words are often spoken at weddings, the message of love is for the church. May we remember that we are,
...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,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end.
(The Message , 1st Corinthians 13)
May you know the love of Christ and because of that great love, freely love others.
Blessings for the New Year,
