The Best Way
. . . Love (God’s love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking . . . . — 1 CORINTHIANS 13:5 (Amplified)
Take time to let today’s text sink into your heart.
Too many people would rather declare, “Well, I know what’s mine, though. I’ve got my say-so, and I’m going to have it. I’ve got my rights, and I’m going to have them.” And they insist on having their own way, no matter how much their actions may hurt someone else.
I was only twenty years old and unmarried when I pastored my second church, and I rented a room from a couple in the church. The man of the house knew the Bible, and he had a marvelous experience with God. But he was the type of person who said, “I’ve got my say-so, and I’m going to have it. I’m a member of that church just as much as anyone else, and I’ve got my say-so.” He had his say-so all right, and so did some of the others, until they wrecked the church.
This text says that love does not insist on having its own rights. Start believing in God and believing in love. It’s the best way — and it’s your way!
Confession: I believe in God. And I believe in love. I am a love person. I do not insist on my own rights. I do not insist on my own way. I am not self-seeking. I am a love person.
