Love is Patient and Kind


I have been studying 1 Corinthians 13 this week and thinking a lot about how to better myself.

Love is patient and kind.
I try to be these things and think of these characters even when I feel the opposite way.

Love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude.
I am rude when I judge others. I am trying to remember that everyone has their own struggles. I am also trying to let go of envy all together. When I release envy from my heart than I can appreciate who I am and love myself. 

It does not insist on it's own way; it is not irritable or resentful, it does not rejoice at wrong doing, but rejoices with the truth.
Love is not selfish. Love is wanting what is best for others above your own personal desires. I am working on loving everyone I meet without judging them, complaining about who they are, what they are doing or how they are doing it. God is the judge, not me. My job is to love all of God's children equally. 

I need to find love in all that I do.
If we all take a minute  to love when we are talking about someone else or complaining about someone or something, we could start a chain reaction of positivity.
I strive to stay positive.
It's hard, but I'm working on it.

How to you stay positive?
