1 Corinthians 13: 4-7 4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
A couple of young ladies told me they enjoy my “urban dictionary style” paraphrasing of the Bible. Here’s my interpretation of that passage:
Love does not tap its foot while in front of the microwave. Love celebrates other’s successes. Love doesn’t pout. Love does what’s best for others first. Love doesn’t say “I told you so”…no matter how bad it wants to. Love is an umbrella in the storms of life. Love is worth fighting for. Love doesn’t look before it leaps. Love doesn’t quit! Love is stronger than titanium.
Nothing motivates me quite the way love does. Maybe that’s why I have “love” tattooed on my person. I think everything in life comes down to love.
