1 Corinthians 13:5

1 Corinthians 13_5.jpg

It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  – 1 Corinthians 13:5

Dear Jesus,

You honored the smallest child, the poorest widow, and the most complicated ruler.  You were tested beyond limits by the bad character of friends and foes and you never gave way to sinful anger.  You focused on your disciples’ souls without keeping track of how many times they argued over who was the greatest.  You keep no records.  I want the life freed from keeping score that loves brings.  Fill me with your Holy Spirit of love so I honor all people the same and forget their sins as much as I hope they will forget mine. 

Amen

Pastor Don Patterson

Love focuses on the blood bought soul and not the things they have done or do.
