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 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?…

The Power of Love

The Power of Love

The Power of Love Long before I got married, I have loved 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. For those of you who may not remember it entirely, here it is from the ESV: 4 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;[a] 6 it does not rejoice at wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never ends. I don’t know…

Marriage is Challenging: Part Two

Marriage is Challenging: Part Two

Welcome back everyone, to week two of my blog! Thank you so much for the comments I’ve received so far. I’d love to hear from more of you! But for now, on with the tale of my husband and I, and where we are today. After my husband lost his job, we tried starting an e-commerce store. It didn’t work out, but that was my fault. He wanted me to follow the guidelines of other successful stores, but I was…

Marriage is Challenging: Part One

Marriage is Challenging: Part One

Any marriage is hard. Growing up, we all have some view on marriage. If your parents had a bad marriage (got divorced, never were married, maybe a spouse left) then you probably had a negative outlook on marriage. If your parents had a good marriage, you probably figured you’d have one too. We see what we’re used to seeing. From the time I was ten, I wanted to be married. My dream in life was to be a godly wife,…
