When discussing Paul's recent letter together this week, you said Paul’s section on love sunk home for you, as later this you’ll be seeing extended family, including a family member who borrowed a chariot & hasn’t paid you back.
You said remembering that section was helpful because now you’ll have to put it into practice. As requested, here is a copy of that section. Please read it aloud, to yourself and possibly with others.
“If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things!” [1Corinthians 13:1-7 ESV) ]
Praying that the Lord fill you with His love and richly bless you and your (extended) family this holiday season, keep you all safe on your travels.
Your Brother and Friend in Christ
