Together with kindness and in understanding, let’s take this time to self reflect.  I am here to inspire, encourage, and remind you that God has given us the most important weapon we have to fight the enemy, his WORD.

Now let’s dress our bodies like we dress our souls, EVERYDAY!

Love Anyway

1 Corinthians 13

New International Version

13 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, 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.

Love never fails.

Our Lord and Savior Jesus, demonstrated love through his life on this earth. Even from the cross he died for us all. The Love Chapter of Corinthians tells us what love is and it also shows us best what love is not.

I read several quotes from famous people who gave their view of what love is.

“Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.” Martin Luther king Jr.

“Love is like a virus. It can happen to anybody at any time.” Maya Angelou

“I know that love is real when it’s not convenient, when it’s not selfish,  when it’s challenged, sometimes even if it’s not reciprocated.” Viola Davis

“Falling out of love is like losing weight.  It’s a lot easier putting it on than taking it off.” Aretha Franklin

“We’ve got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can’t just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it’s going to get on by itself. You’ve got to keep watering it. You’ve got to really look after it and nurture it.” John Lennon

Love keeps us as each others keeper. And remember the only time that you should be looking down on someone is when we are helping the up.
