Mid Afternoon Meditation 5-14-16

Here is what I am wondering this afternoon…

If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing.

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. 1 Cor. 13:1-8

How do I stop keeping track of the wrongs of others?

  1. That’s a good question. It can creep in so subtly, too, and lay dormant without me being aware of it. Until one day a misunderstanding standing happens and that dormant revord pops up as a thought, “she always…” or “He never…” and I realize that I’ve kept a record of wrongs without realizing it.

    Maybe it begins with me taking every thought captive as well as asking the Holy Spirit to search my heart and mind and show me areas I need to make right. I know that I neglect to do these things consistently enough.
