Be Loving

In the first letter to the Corinthians from the Bible, Paul explained about spiritual gifts.  While each member of the church had a gift, the most excellent one was love.

Love was patient, kind, always protected, trusted, hoped and persevered.

It was never envious, boastful, proud, rude, self-seeking or easily angered.
Love did not keep any record of wrong doings or delight in evil but rejoiced with the truth.

This list of important qualities is difficult to follow but absolutely necessary for spiritual growth.  The Lord calls us to be loving beings no matter what the circumstances, even with our enemies.  

As God is Love, so must we be!
