1 Corinthians 13:4-7
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, and always perseveres.
If you have ever been to a wedding, odds are good that this verse was read out loud as a challenge to the new bride and groom. It’s a powerful and beautiful list of the attributes that go along with the kind of love God has in mind for His people…and for our families.
Imagine for a minute if these attributes began to show up in your home. What would it be like for brothers and sisters…mothers and fathers…husbands and wives? What would dinnertime be like…or Saturdays…or Sundays before church? How would our families react to tough times or heartache or the needs in our community?
I’m confident that just about every member of both your family and mine understands these attributes…I’m confident that we all know how to live them out…and Scripture assures us that the power of the Holy Spirit enables us to put them into practice every single day…we just choose not to.
APPLICATION: Take turns reading through this beautiful passage of Scripture. Listen carefully as each family member recites these powerful descriptions of what love can look like. Pray through them as a family, asking the Lord to help you live them out every single day.
