Prayer Journal: Day 37

Day 37

Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, it 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. Love never fails. – 1 Cor. 13:4-7

It seems that we suffer a long time the more we are kind and try to accommodate others. Love requires sacrifice and the greatest sacrifice is to lay down one’s life for others. Jesus did that for us. He suffered a long time. He was more than patient.

He even at some point asked his Father to take “this cup from me,” (Luke 22:42) yet He submitted to His Father’s will anyway. It could not have been easy, but Jesus loves us so much that He died for us. We should be grateful.
