Chapter 7: Sweet Maria (pg 46)
Quote of the Day:
“Because of our love for each other, I understand just a little more how God has pursued me in creative and whimsical ways, ways that initially did not get my attention. Nevertheless, He wouldn’t stop. That’s what love does – it pursues blindly, unflinchingly, and without end. When you go after something you love, you’ll do anything it takes to get it, even if it costs everything.” – Love Does by Bob Goff, pg 52
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 “4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.”
Putting Love into Action:
Love never fails. Is there someone or some situation in your life where you’ve felt like giving up on love? Have you felt like you’re not making any progress? Take one more step, in love. Reach out to the people involved. Let God’s love reflect through you.
Have you ever experienced God’s love through the way someone else treated you? If so, describe the situation.
