True Love Seeks Not It's Own Way

"Be devoted to one another in brotherly love ; give preference to one another in honor... Be of the same mind toward one another; do not be haughty in mind, but associate with the lowly. Do not be wise in your own estimation. Never pay back evil for evil to anyone. Respect what is right in the sight of all men. If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men. Never take your own vengeance , beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written ,"Vengeance is Mine, I will repay," says the Lord. "But if your enemy is hungry, feed him, and if he is thirsty, give him a drink; for in so doing you will heap coals upon his head." Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good." Romans 12 :10,16-21 "Love...does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek it's own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered." I Corinthians 13:5

Respect what is right in the sight of all men....I love that. It is a perfect message for the world today. Your "doves of peace" are very appropriate.

I love "does not take into account a wrong suffered." It says so much, and can prevent so many ill thoughts.

Have a beautiful Sunday, Kathy.
