People are difficult at times. Maybe it’s a colleague at work, a family member or spouse. Relationships are complicated at the best of times, but remember: love never fails. The Word of God clearly defines love in 1 Corinthians 13. It says that love is patient and kind. It doesn’t seek its own way. Love doesn’t keep a record of wrongs. And most importantly, love never fails.
Notice that this chapter doesn’t talk at all about how you feel. God’s love isn’t about feelings. It’s choice and principle. You can choose to be patient, even when you don’t feel like being patient. You can choose to be kind, even when you don’t feel like being kind.
Today, no matter what situation you find yourself in, you can choose love. You are never more like God than when you are walking in love. And when you are walking in love, you will never fail, because love never fails. Open your heart to God’s love today. Receive His love, and ask Him to show you how to love others better, because love never fails!
“Love never fails…” (1 Corinthians 13:8, NIV)
Yahweh, thank You for Your love which never fails. Thank You for loving me so that I can be free to love others. Empower me, by Your Spirit, to walk in love no matter what I may face today, in Christ’s Name! Amen.
