Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. - I Corinthians 13
And my first thought was... great I am completely and utterly falling short... but I am trying so hard Lord! Then in the midst of my frustration with my self. This is what God taught me... Love is a fruit of the Spirit. (Galatians 5:22) Which means just what it says.. it is something that we are only able to do with the Holy Spirit's help. We in and of ourselves will never love others like we are supposed to. It has to be with God's help. Jesus didn't save us to leave us to live life on our own. He sent us help in the form of the Holy Spirit...
Because of Him,
