Love is not self-seeking . . .
In a world where love is expressed in thousands of ways within diverse relationships – confusion can arise upon its true meaning. The confusion, about the truth of love, can fog the heart bringing it to a place of compromise and complacency or taking it to heights of great expectation only to fall down that self built silver tower.
With the countless destinations that victories and failures of relationships take us we are bound to be tainted by the seemingly attributes they produce. When love is placed in the hands of wrong decisions or the mishaps of life we can sometimes become stained by shame, guilt, hate, rage, and a lower self-worth. These attributes of selfish love or love tainted by impurity become true love’s mate. A love that is tainted or stained can bring loneliness, emptiness, a void that only true love can fill.
When love is in the right place at the right time such feelings of joy, strength, and beauty are not only felt but also tasted and seen. True love between a man and woman is the most beautiful experience two people can share. The love between parents and their children is something that is unconditional and life saving. The love we show towards a friend, a co-worker, or a stranger triggers a life of fruitfulness; a domino effects that is forever life changing.
“Love does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail.
Love takes no account of the evil done to it (it pays no attention to a suffered wrong).
Love is not touchy or fretful or resentful
Love (God’s love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking;” ~ 1 Corinthians 13
I encourage you today to choose love by walking in forgiveness, living and giving yourself freely, and enjoying the love gifts God has entrusted to you.
LIVE TODAY! and . . .
Keep smilin’ ~ Jenn
