Probably all of us have heard of 'The Love Verse' from the Bible in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. It goes as follows. . .
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails."
What a great verse. We can us it as a checklist to see how well we are doing with loving others. Now re-read the verses but this time put your name in for the word love. Got it? OK, here you go. . .
_____________ is patient,
_____________ is kind.

You did it!! How'd you do? Were you convicted in some areas that maybe you could be loving better. Remember though, God doesn't want us to feel condemned (John 3: 17) but He does want to get our attention. We can always do better and improve so we represent Christ better to our family and the world.
