Spiritual Warfare: 'The Truth about Love'

God's Power for Our Battles — Tuesday, May 4, 2021

Love is patient. Love is kind. Love isn't jealous. It doesn't sing its own praises. It isn't arrogant. It isn't rude. It doesn't think about itself. It isn't irritable. It doesn't keep track of wrongs.
— 1 Corinthians 13:4-5 GWT

Today's Prayer

Lord, I am so thankful for Your love. You have been so patient and kind with me when I have been impatient and rude. You have tolerated me while I have been so arrogant and focused on myself and my desires. You have been good to me while I have been rude and indifferent to others. You have thought about me while I'm thinking only about myself. You have put good people around me even though I've been rude and inconsiderate with them. And when I asked you to forgive all those things, You wiped my slate clean. Thank You. Please help me to be able to do that for others now. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
