Love…bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.      1 Corinthians 13:7

Love has no limits. Love never says, “You’ve gone too far. I can’t love you now.”  “All things” means everything is included. Christlike love leaves no doubt in the mind of another that you will continue to love steadfastly. Do those close to you know that they can fail and do foolish things, yet you will not falter in your love for them? Are others assured that, even when they hurt you, you still love them, holding nothing against them?

Love assumes the best about others. If someone inadvertently offends you, you choose to believe the offense was unintentional. If someone seeks to harm you, you “bear all things,” forgiving unconditionally. If a positive light can be shed on a difficult encounter, you grasp it. If someone continually provokes you, you “endure all things.” You never lose hope in the ones you love. You practice the same unconditional love toward others that Christ gives to you.

Paul said that he was nothing if he had the faith to move mountains, the tongue of an angel, and the gift of prophecy to understand all mysteries, yet did not have God’s love. It is unacceptable to say, “Well, I just can’t love people that way!”  When God loves people through you, this is the only kind of love He has! Read 1 Corinthians 13 with gratitude that God has already expressed this complete and selfless love to you. Pray and ask Him to express it through you now, to others.

    At what point do you decide: Matthew 10:14
    Whoever does not receive you, nor heed your words, as you go out of that house or that city, shake the dust off your feet.

    And: John 11:54
    Therefore Jesus no longer continued to walk publicly among the Jews, but went away from there to the country near the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim; and there He stayed with the disciples.

    And: Romans 12:9
    Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil; cling to what is good.

    And: 2 Corinthians 11:32-33
    32 In Damascus the ethnarch under Aretas the king was guarding the city of the Damascenes in order to seize me, 33 and I was let down in a basket through a window in the wall, and so escaped his hands.

    And: 1 Peter 3:11
    “He must turn away from evil and do good; He must seek peace and pursue it.

    And:2 John 9-11
    9 Anyone who goes too far and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God; the one who abides in the teaching, he has both the Father and the Son. 10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house, and do not give him a greeting; 11 for the one who gives him a greeting participates in his evil deeds.

    Yes, without love it profits us nothing to do things, if we have no love for love is of GOD and GOD is love.

    I am learning to Love people who don’t love me, but it is really hard.

    Also, people who do intentionally Hurt me, and maliciously lie on me.
