Love is Patient & Kind

For whatever reason it is easier to be kind to strangers and friends some days than to the people we live with, the folks we love the most. It seems these people can bring out the worst in us or, maybe, they are just a safe place to be ourselves and know that we are loved anyway. Whatever the reason, the kids and I are pondering 1 Corinthians 13 today and praying that we learn to love each other in this very way.

Love is patient. Love is kind.
Love is not jealous. Love is not proud.
Love is not rude. Love is not selfish.
Love is not easily angered. Love keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil. Love rejoices with the truth.
Love always protects. Love always trusts.
Love always hopes. Love always perseveres.
Love never fails.
