Love CharacteristicsFebruary 21, 2018
"Love does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail. Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person" (1 Cor. 13:6-7).
"Love bears up under anything and everything that comes. "If you have the God-kind of love within - and if you walk in the God-kind of love - you will make it every time!"
"Love is ever ready to believe the best of every person." Natural human love is ever ready to believe the worst about every person! I've traveled across this country for many years in the ministry, and it's amazing what you hear about this preacher and that preacher, this person and that person, this singer and that singer.
I don't pay the least bit of attention to any of those stories. I don't believe a word of them. I believe the best of everyone.
Children ought to have the right to be brought up in this love atmosphere in the home. Then they'll go out in life's fight and win. But when you always see the worst in the children and always tell them, "You'll never amount to anything," they'll live up to what you say. But when you see the best in them and love them, it will bring out the best in them. They will grow up to amount to something.
Confession: I am a love person. I do not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness. I rejoice when right and truth prevail. I bear up under anything and everything that comes. I am ever ready to believe the best of every person.
