Increasing Godly Love

This is a practical follow-up to the message last week on loving God and loving people.

Write out I Corinthians 13:4-7 on a 3 by 5 card and tape it to your bathroom mirror.

Love suffers long and is kind: love does not envy: love does not parade itself, 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.  (NKJ)

In the morning read through the verses, then ask God to help you demonstrate godly love throughout the day.  Each time that you are in the bathroom read through the verses.  At the end of the day, read through the verses and ask yourself in what ways you succeeding in showing godly love, and in what ways you failed.

I strongly suspect that we, and those around us, would see an increase in godly love demonstrated in our lives.
