“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Love is patient, love is kind.

.

It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

It does not dishonour others,

it is not self-seeking,

it is not easily angered,

it keeps no record of wrongs.

.

Love does not delight in evil

but rejoices with the truth.

.

It always protects, always trusts,

always hopes,

always perseveres.

.

– 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

REFLECTION…

.

These verses, from St. Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians,

do not require comment

.

.

but deep reflection is due

.

…as is prayer.

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

Lord, this is my prayer, for today…and everyday…

.

Lord, please make me patient and make me kind.

Remove from me all envy, boastfulness, and pride.

Let me never dishonour others, nor be self-seeking.

.

Stop me, Lord, from being easily angered,

and from keeping record of the wrongs of others.

My Lord, I do not want to ever delight in evil

but to always rejoice with the truth.

Lord, help me to always protect, trust, hope and persevere.

.

For this I sincerely pray, Lord, to love like You do.

Lord Jesus, make me more like You!
