Verse of the Day: 1 Corinthians 13:5
(Love) it keeps no record of wrongs.
We’re not perfect and there are going to be times when we disagree or have conflict but love fights fair and it doesn’t keep score. It doesn’t bring up the past and it doesn’t use the past to purposefully hurt each other. Love listens before speaking, is gentle and fair. Love tries to understand and love forgives. Forgive and forget the mistake but remember the lesson so you can keep growing. Holding on to the past only keeps you from moving forward. Keeping a record of wrongs creates a bitter heart and a bitter heart can find no peace.
Lord, thank You for Your mercy and forgiveness, without it where would I be? Lord, help me to forgive the way you do, without keeping a record of wrongs. Holding on to the hurt and pain only creates bitterness in my heart. Help me to let go of the past so that I can move forward with love and compassion. Fill my heart with Your peace, Lord, so that when disagreements arise I can act with gentleness and fairness, harboring no resentment. In Jesus’ Name, Amen
