Love is Not Irritable
Hi Lovebugs :)
Are you easily annoyed or angered? Do you find that all it takes is for someone to say something wrong or even look at you wrong and you'll fly off the handle? Well my dear, that's not love!
Now granted, there will be people and situations that will ruffle our feathers a bit but we, as God's people have a level of responsibility we have to maintain. Sometimes, we may just have to be quiet. Sometimes, we may just have to turn the other cheek. And yes, there will be times where we'll have to be the bigger person. At the end of the day, what matters most is not our feelings but making sure that we show love because when we show love, we're showing God.
So the next time we're faced with a situation that's irritating or bothersome, take a deep breath. Decide to show love instead of sowing hate. Resolve to let God deal with the situation and try your best to remain holy. Because when the dust settles and the feelings have subsided, wouldn't you like to know that love will be there, standing tall?
I Corinthians 13:5 "... Love is not irritable.."
