in "Crazy Love", Francis Chan challenges his readers to put their name into this familiar passage from 1 Corinthians 13. it's really kind of an eye-opening experience as to just how far from being loving i really am. this morning, i was doing some thinking on how i view God, what my understanding of His nature is and how this affects how i relate to Him. these verses came to mind once again...
God is patient, God is kind. God does not envy, God does not boast, God is not proud. God is not rude, God is not self-seeking, God is not easily angered, God keeps no record of wrongs. God does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. God always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. God never fails.
i know in my head that God is love. therefore, he embodies these characteristics. if i really let these truths sink in, how does that change the way i see and approach my Father?
