Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

Last week we looked at 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, where Paul is talking about love.

"Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things."

It is difficult for children to love this way, as they are self-centered. A common tease for teenagers is that they say, "It's ALL about ME!"

Not so with the spirit led Christian. It's ALL about GOD, JESUS, and the HOLY SPIRIT! What do they want!

God Bless You!

--FEATURED FUNNY:

A few years ago we were desperately trying to sell our house, which was situated on a busy thoroughfare. Our real estate agent decided to have open-house inspection nearly every day to promote the sale. We instructed the children not to talk to anyone about the house.

One evening a man took our seven-year-old daughter aside and asked if our house had any secrets he should know. Her first reaction was to smile and ignore his question. But he became more persistent and, finally, she confessed there was one secret but she could not tell it to him.

"Now we're getting somewhere," he said. "Tell me the secret. I promise I won't tell anyone."

She looked him straight in the eye and whispered, "We have angels watching over us here."
