Love is patient, when, after a challenging day, he calls you to say that he's bringing 12 guests home for supper.
Love is kind. She waits at the end of a tiring day with a mug of hot chocolate a back rub, and a peaceful smile ... and he calls when he is going to be home unusually late.
Love does not envy when the church moves him to a new district, away from the best job prospects you have ever had
Love does not boast, knowing that whatever we seem to achieve, it is only through Christ's strength.
Love is not proud. It does not have to prove to anyone that it can do everything!
Love is not rude. It does not make sarcastic comments or snide remarks when it feels let down.
Love is not self-seeking. It does not seek pity when church members are hurting your feelings and thwarting your plans, but just a hug, some understanding, and an armful of prayers.
Love is not easily angered when extra time with a church member interrupts your special plans for the day. Maybe the -interruption" is God's special plan for the day...?
Love keeps no record of floppy salads, ruined meals, and late arrivals. Oak ove doesn't delight in evil, eager to know the latest church gossip ... but rejoices with the truth when someone has been led to Jesus Christ.
Love always protects a reputation in the midst of misunderstandings and criticism.
Love always perseveres, especially when it seems that only God is on your side.
Love never fails. It will last forever, into an eternity together with Christ.
May there always be faith, hope, and love in your lives. But may the greatest of these be your love for God, and your love for each other.
