"Love is Patient,
Love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast.
It is not proud.
It does not dishonor others,
it is not self-seeking,
it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love delights not in evil
but rejoices with the truth.
It bears all things,
believes all things,
endures all things.
Love never fails."
1 Corinthians 13: 4-8...and food for thought...."keeping no record of wrongs" - this in particular stood out. Sometimes it's hard to let go when people hurt you. But the anger, resentment, and revenge fantasies we make up, they poison our ability to love. Forgive and let go....that is what love does. I'm going work hard on this one.
Scripture is. How you live it, is up to you.
Become a light in the darkest spaces...or twist words of wisdom into a blinding hypocasy, you use for corruption or self grandizement.
Just know, you aren't fooling anyone. Goodness bares delicious fruit and eternal life...selfishness and falsehood, damnation.... In the biblical sense "damnation" is a firey Hell.... To those of you who dont believe in Hell.... it is the poisoning of love, the end of hope and the corruption of potential.
Love the best you can. We are all imperfect, but if we just try and be a little kinder....love can heal all.
Eternal life is Heaven to me...but it is also the legacy of who I am after I am gone. I do my best to love...not perfect, but perfectly trying.
Happy 2021 friends.
May you enjoy success and happiness in the coming year.
