And I am sitting on the side my bed, not yet made, watching my ten month old grandson sleep in his baby bed, with my Bible turned to 1 Corinthians 13.
And the following words fill my heart.
Love in very patient and kind.
Love is never jealous or envious.
Love is never boastful or proud.
Love is never selfish, haughty or rude.
Love does not demand it’s own way.
Love is not irritable or touchy.
Love does not hold grudges and will hardly even notice when others do it wrong.
If you love someone you will be loyal to them no matter what the cost.
You will always believe in them, always expect the best of them, and always stand your ground in defending them.
The following words from that same chapter are slowly but hopefully certainly becoming my goal for the rest of my life.
These are the following words.
There are three things that remain – – faith, hope and love – – and the greatest of these is love. Let love be your greatest aim.
Not success as we define it to be.
Not power or money, position or title, academic or religious understanding…none of that.
Our greatest aim should be love.
…Happy Valentines Day
