Over at my cousin’s blog, she posted 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, The Message version and subtituted “Love” with her own name, titling the post “All I should be and all I wanted [sic.] to be like”. I think it is a very inspiring way to look at these verses, so here goes the same verses personalized for me.
Aiko never gives up.
Aiko cares more for others than for herself.
Aiko doesn’t want what she doesn’t have.
Aiko doesn’t strut,
Doesn’t have a swelled head,
Doesn’t force herself on others,
Isn’t always “me first,”
Doesn’t fly off the handle,
Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn’t revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end.
Definitely worth striving for. In fact, it is an absolute MUST. Thanks, dear cousin, for the inspiration, and help me, Father, to be able to live it in my life… *Aiko goes to copy this into her journal*
