When I go to the dentist, I try to relax. I have to remind myself that it is only an hour visit and they are not out to hurt me. But it is a struggle to relax and not tense up. Life is a lot like my visits to the dentist. There are things that get me worked up and make it hard for me to show the love of Christ. I need to remind myself that in the big plan, our time here is but a short time. Our goal should be to love as Christ first loved us.
O – offers
V – victory
E – Everlasting
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (NIV)
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
5 It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails.
