Kind and patient Love
Scripture reading for July 23rd: Psalm 37-40, 1st Corinthians 13
Key Scriptures: 1st Corinthians 13:4-8 “Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. . . .”
The more excellent way is walking by the Spirit in love. God is love. Paul’s great chapter on the enduring and powerful working of love stands as a beacon for all believers to walk in God’s great love. God has demonstrated His patience, kindness, truth and overcoming love to us through Jesus Christ. We rejoice in this truth and ask God to fill us with His kind and patient love.
Psalm 37:34 “Wait for the Lord and keep His way; and He will exalt you to inherit the land; you will look on when the wicked are cut off.”
Prayer: Lord, thank You for Your kind and patient love expressed to us so generously in Your Son, Jesus Christ. Fill us with this love again today and let it overflow in our souls. Amen.
