1 Corinthians 13:7

[Love] hopes all things.

Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

As I prayed for wisdom and guidance (before beginning to write today's Positive, Encouraging & Inspirational Message), the image that popped into my mind was of a parent's hopes for a beloved, treasured, precious child. If you are a parent, I probably need write no more! If you are not a parent, think of anyone who you genuinely love dearly. Think of all the hopes that you have for that person! Now! Use that same love to inspire equally fulfilling hopes to others, and, perhaps, we have a sense of what the above scripture is asking of us.

God Bless You!

--TODAY'S BIT OF WISDOM/REFLECTION:

You take up the subject of love in the Bible! You will get so full of it that all you have to do is to open your lips, and a flood of the love of God flows out.

--FEATURED POEM:

Love is good above all others,
which alone maketh every burden light.
Love is watchful, and
whilst sleeping still
keeps watch; though fatigued
is not weary;
though pressed is not forced.
Love is sincere, gentle,
strong, patient, faithful,
prudent, long-suffering...
Love is circumspect, humble,
upright, not weary, not fickle,
not intent on vain things, sober,
chaste, steadfast, quiet, and
guarded in all the senses.

-Thomas a Kempis
