When I talk with my grandma, she likes to tell me about her past. She has told me that the world has changed a lot since she was a child. Once Grandma said to me, ?Why is there so much hate today? There used to be so much love in the world.?
In 1 Corinthians, chapter 13, Paul described love. He said in verses 4-7 that love is patient, kind, not jealous, not rude, not selfish and truth-loving. Often when I read these verses, I use ?I? instead of the word ?love.? The verse says, ?Love is patient,? so I say, ?I am patient.? Then I ask myself,
?Is that true? Am I patient?? If my answer is ?no,? I try to do better.
Verse 8a says, ?Love never ends.? It is good to know that God?s love will continue forever. I am a Christian. God wants me to show His love to everyone I meet. But I must remember to have the kind of love that Paul talked about in these verses.
Look for ways to show God?s love today.
