_______ is Patient

The Bible says we should love one another. If asked, most of us would say we do. We’d say we love people, we don’t hold grudges and do ok in this area.  In 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 (below), the Bible gives the definition of love. I’ve taken out some words and left a blank. Read it and fill in your name in each blank.

______ is patient, ______ is kind. ______ does not envy, ______ does not boast, ______ is not proud.  ______ does not dishonor others, ______  is not self-seeking, ______ is not easily angered, ______  keeps no record of wrongs. ______  does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. ______  always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

When I did this I realized that I fall short of truly loving. But do not be discouraged. God is the Author of Love and as we spend time with him, his love will become real and perfect in our lives.
