Love: Living Frank’s Prayer, Part 11 of 14.

February 14, 2012

“Grant that I may not so much seek to be loved, as to love.”

It’s been my joy to preside at more weddings than I’ll admit.  Over more years than I’ll admit.

But there’s one thing I will admit: it’s hard to top one particular short paragraph for a wedding homily text.

“Love is patient.  It is kind.  It does not envy.  

“Love is not proud.  It is not rude.  It is not self-seeking.

“Love is not easily angered, and keeps no record of wrongs.

“Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth.

“Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes and always perseveres.”

You and I know that as First Corinthians 13.

Quick self-inventory: put your own name in each phrase, as in “Kirsten is patient…true or false?”  What changes could you make to be more loving?

And Happy Valentine’s Day!
