Love is Inconvenient

calm-before-storm-1“Love suffers long, it is kind and does not envy…it is not easily provoked and keeps no record of wrongs. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. It never fails. Only three things will last forever: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.”       ~1 Corinthians 13:4-13

Love is inconvenient.

Before it can be a noun

it must be a verb.

If you don’t love

when it’s inconvenient

you don’t love at all.

    Just watched “Healing River” and enjoyed the story tremendously. The young man playing Alec was outstanding. I also liked the twists and turns it took for Alec to overcome his guilt and return to faith. Great viewing for a hot summer afternoon in Minnesota.

      Kathy, I am so glad you enjoyed Healing River! May I encourage you to share it on Facebook, and to leave a brief review at Amazon? (The more reviews it gets, the more they recommend it). Also, you can rate it from 1 to 10 stars on IMDb (link below). Note: IMDb only recognizes the rating if you rate a few other movies, as well. Thanks and blessings, my friend!

    So very, very true. Stubborn, persistent love… the kind that allows a parent to cling to God’s grace as his child wanders wayward; the kind that opens the door of a hateful neighbor; the kind that our Savior displayed on Calvary for all of mankind.

    So very, very true.

  12. Love this post! Although it is different it still reminded me of my post ‘Love is not blind’. Love takes effort which you clearly pointed out in this post.
