The Meditation

For many people, love is a resource or reference toward which they turn, or in which they indulge at will.

Christian love is the constant abiding of love as a consistent witness to the presence of Christ’s spirit in all situation that we face.

Love at its best, meets life at its worst, and in the darkest night, holds up a light and shouts to the world, “This is right. Love! Love! Love!”

Love untested, may be weak, complacent and ineffective.

Love that gives us patience is deliberate, dedicated, intentional and made possible by God’s grace.

If we understood our own needs completely, don’t you think we would be more patient with others?

When we remember God’s patience with us, it is much easier to be patient in love toward others.
