The Love Test!

[The Way of Love]
If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don’t love, I’m nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate.
If I speak God’s Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, “Jump,” and it jumps, but I don’t love, I’m nothing.
If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I've gotten nowhere.
So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.
*Take the Love Test:
ð Love never gives up.
ð Love cares more for others than for self.
ð Love doesn't want what it doesn't have.
ð Love doesn't strut,
ð Doesn't have a swelled head,
ð Doesn't force itself on others,
ð Doesn't fly off the handle,
ð Doesn't revel when others grovel,
ð Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
ð Puts up with anything…
ð Trusts God always,
ð Always looks for the best,
ð Never looks back, but keeps going to the end…
How did you do on the Love Test?
Don’t feel bad if you couldn't check everything off on the list, I couldn't either! It just means we are human and still have room to grow in our love life. Now we are conscious of the areas in our love life that need tweaking and we can get to work! From what I heard, there are over 6 billion people in the world, so we have a lot of people to practice on…isn't that good news? And for even better news, we can begin at home!
Have a great love week!
