Love Series: No Longer Selfish

I love youThe other day my Pastor spoke a timely word, and God showed me I was selfish. Someone was talking and I was afraid to respond. I was not purposely being selfish, just afraid to respond.

But the sermon was clear that love gives with no account of what is returned. This is a hard concept to put into place. Most of us are conditioned to responding to what is given to us. But I feel God freeing me. There are a lot of things that I have to be taught. It doesn’t always come naturally. But I know I have it in me to love unconditionally.

I’m excited! It will be nice to love someone unconditionally. God knows! It’s just like me driving. It just feel so natural and I am so comfortable. It just feels right. I feel that way about this love that God has given me. It just feels like now is the time to show that love!

1 Corinthians 13:4-6

New International Version (NIV)

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
