Love Never Fails

Do you have a personal knowledge of the love of God, the Father?

God is love. Even when He is correcting you, He does not shout and scream. Everything He does in your life is for your good, and is not based on His convenience.  Knowing, experiencing, and receiving God’s love makes an impact on how you parent.  If you have been abused, abandoned or neglected by those you love, it is so important to go through steps to your own personal freedom so that you are able to give God’s love to your children.

The walk of love is beautifully described in I Corinthians 13:4-7. The Message Bible reads:

Love never gives up. 

   Love cares more for others than for self. 

   Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have. 

   Love doesn’t strut, 

   Doesn’t have a swelled head, 

   Doesn’t force itself on others, 

   Isn’t always “me first,” 

   Doesn’t fly off the handle, 

   Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others, 

   Doesn’t revel when others grovel, 

   Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth, 

   Puts up with anything, 

   Trusts God always, 

   Always looks for the best, 

   Never looks back, 

   But keeps going to the end.

Let the words from 1 Corinthians 13 wash over you, not as an impossible list to live up to. Rather, let it be a mark of the powerful transformation God is able to work in each one of us, as we surrender our lives to Him.
