Sunday Verses

What Does Patient Love Look Like
Happy Sunday! Where are my dishwasher reloaders? I have been trying for years to train my husband how to load the dishwasher the right way--my way. It is one of those things that after almost 33 years of marriage, I have accepted is not going to change--he has his way and I have mine and that is okay. A few weeks ago I told you that I have been looking at verses on love. I think for years I have read this very first part of the Corinthians love verses as "love is patient WHILE I wait for you to change". The definition of patience is accepting problems and suffering without becoming annoyed or anxious, it doesn't mention altering behavior. Love is patient doesn't mean loving someone while we wait for them to change, but rather loving them as they are. God loves us just as we are. He is not sitting around waiting to love us more when we change. He cannot love us more than he already does. Let's practice patiently loving one another as we are, not holding back love until someone modifies their behavior into what we think it should be.

  1. I have a particular way to load and not too much. Luckily Randy does not load it as he likes me to!
