Your Behavior

1Corinthian 13:4-7

Your behavior is only a reflection of your belief, recognize yourself in your own behavior and love you.

 4Love is patient, love is kind, it isn’t jealous, it doesn’t brag, it isn’t arrogant, 5 it isn’t rude, it doesn’t seek its own advantage, it isn’t irritable, it doesn’t keep a record of complaints, 6 it isn’t happy with injustice, but it is happy with the truth. 7 Love puts up with all things, trusts in all things, hopes for all …

Your behavior is a reflection, of how you love yourself. Love is a word that is used so many times and in different meanings. You say you love someone but treat them as if they are a stranger to you. You say you love someone but are abusive to them mentally, physically and spiritually. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things. Paul mentions the twelfth characteristic of agape love, saying that love “…believeth all things….” The word “believeth” is actually the word pisteuei, which is the Greek word meaning to put one’s faith or trust in something or someone.  Your Faith should be put in only one thing, the word of God. Never give up on yourself, love yourself and you will blossom into knowing who you are. Are you awake enough to grab a hold of it? Don’t forget you die six to eight hours out of a day. If you cannot stay awake; you cannot stay aware. In light of this, the Greek phrase could actually be taken to mean that love “believes the best in every situation.” It sees everything — the good, the bad, and the ugly. It pushes the disconcerting, disturbing, negative realities out of the way. It does not mean that it will ignore every problem,  challenge, or  conflict  in life; it simply means to love you.

How many of you will blossom into loving yourself?

             Our Prayer for You Today!

Lord, I ask You to help me learn to operate in the spirit of faith, love, belief, life-changing, high-level love. Please help me to quit judging others for the problems in their lives and to start thinking about how I can protect and cover them in times of difficulty. Holy Spirit, I also ask You for the strength for me to love myself as others see that I am loved. To remain committed to your word with everything You intended for me to be! I am anticipating a new surge of Your power over my life and strength right now, to help me get started on this path, and I’ll keep believing and confidently expecting until I see the results in my life that I know You want!

I pray this in Jesus’ name! Amen!
