Love Rejoices in the Truth

Love Rejoices in the Truth

Today we’re continuing my series on love taken from the scripture 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. What is truth? In society today truth seems to be whatever one wants it to be. If I want to believe something, it’s true to me. But is that really truth? What if my truth says that your truth is wrong? Does that still make it true? According to Webster’s dictionary truth is: “the quality or state of being true” “that which is true or in…

5 Things that Drive Depression Away

5 Things that Drive Depression Away

Mental and emotional health is just as important as our physical health, but many of us keep our mental and emotional health problems to ourselves. We don’t mind telling people how we need to lose a few pounds or take up jogging or hit the gym more often. We’ll even admit that we have bad eating habits that we need to break. But we don’t like to talk about what’s going on in our minds, our mental health. Maybe we…

Love Keeps No Record

Love Keeps No Record

Unlike Santa Claus (yes, I do know Christmas is over, but only just), who knows who’s naughty and who’s nice and even keeps a list, we aren’t supposed to keep a record of the wrongs that people do to us. We all screw up. We all hurt other people whether intentionally or unintentionally. We can hurt people through our selfishness, and sometimes we can hurt people when we try to “help” them. We think we know what’s best for them…

Love is Not Easily Angered

Love is Not Easily Angered

Anger is not from God unless it is righteous anger at something worthwhile: for example, you get angry at child abuse and it moves you to do something to stop it. But most of our daily anger issues are not righteous. What does God’s Word say about anger? My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires. (James 1:19-20) Get…

Love is Not Selfish

Love is Not Selfish

I was a very self-centered person growing up. I didn’t have many friends because I wanted them to be like me, to agree with my every opinion, to understand that I was right about everything. It sounds terrible, doesn’t it? Don’t get me wrong, I wasn’t a terrible person by any means. I still loved people, especially my family, and sometimes I was just too shy to get along with others. There were some people I really liked and wanted…

Love is Not Rude

Love is Not Rude

I believe rudeness is becoming an epidemic in the world today – or at least in America. I can’t speak for the rest of the world because I haven’t been there yet. The South has always been said to be one of the friendliest parts of the United States, and some people are, but most of the people I see and observe are rude. In my opinion (through observation and lots of thought), it’s because self-centeredness truly is an epidemic. As…

Love is Not Proud

Love is Not Proud

In 1 Corinthians 13, the Bible says that love is not proud. What is pride? Webster’s defines it as “a feeling or deep pleasure or satisfaction derived from one’s own achievements, the achievements of those with whom one is closely associated, or from qualities or possessions that are widely admired.” That doesn’t sound too bad. So, is pride really such a bad thing? Let’s look at God’s Word. What does Scripture say about pride? Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit…

Love Does Not Boast

Love Does Not Boast

Today I am continuing my love series from 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, does not boast, is not proud. It is not rude, 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.” Love Does Not Boast First of all, what even is boasting?…

Motivation

I’m sorry I didn’t post on Thursday. I had planned out a Thanksgiving post and everything, but when the actual holiday came all I wanted to do was relax. Justin was busy with work and, I don’t know, I guess I just didn’t want to do it. I realize now that I could have written the post on Wednesday and told it to post on Thursday. All well, live and learn. I’m suspending my study on love to ask these…

Love Does Not Envy

Love Does Not Envy

Today’s post is a continuation of my previous series on love, based off 1 Corinthians 13:4-8.  Today is about how love does not envy. Here are the Scriptures again, in case you need a refresher. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices…
