Three words of love

“If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing (1 Cor 13:3).

 

If you were to describe love in three words, what would those three words be? If I could give you three words to describe love, they would be:

 

Sacrifice

 

Love sacrificed his own life for you—for me—for Love. What would you sacrifice to share with Love about the king who sacrificed his throne and life for her?

 

Beautiful

 

If you are like me, you can think of at least one person who has demonstrated and exemplified beautiful love in your life. Who is your example of beautiful love? Would you honor that person and pass on their gift to tell Love that she is a beautiful gift from God?

 

Patient

 

1 Corinthians 13:4 says, “Love is patient”. The Lord patiently waits with arms and heart wide open to receive each of us as his children. No matter what we do or how many times we make a mess of our lives, he is always there waiting. Love has been patiently waiting for 203 days, with arms and heart wide open, to receive the news that someone has chosen to end her wait for a sponsor. Will you be the one to choose Love and end her patient wait?

 

“Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love (1 Cor 13:6-7, 13).
