I love this passage of scripture, but it always makes me stop and think.
Love is patient.
Patience is not one of my best qualities! I desire to be characterized by love. I want others to see Christ's love in me and in the way I treat others. Thankfully, God is gracious and forgives us and is patient with us! So, with God's help, I'll keep working on this one.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
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.
