Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
With Valentine’s Day just a few days ago how could we not use the verse of Love as our Sunday Scripture? I think one of the things that really stands out the most to me in this verse describing love is how selfless it is. In each act you are putting the other person ahead of yourself. And isn’t that really what love is all about? Luckily for me Karen is the embodiment of love because she does not have a selfish bone in her body.
One of the great things about being a Christian is the fact that we know that we do not have to be perfect that we will make mistakes and sin. However at the same time as a Christian we are supposed to be trying to live righteously which is why God gave us all gifts. As a Christian we need to seek out people that are letting God’s light shine through them and emulate them. Karen is somebody that I try to follow her example because she has the gift of being selfless.
