Love is .....

According to 1 Corinthians 13, Love is ... Patient.

I looked up patient in Webster Dictionary and it says - *Bearing pains or trials calmly or without complaint. *Steadfast despite Opposition, difficulty, or adversity. Sounds like what Jesus did don't you think.

Psalm 40:1 I waited patiently for the Lord and He inclined unto me, and heard my cry.

James 1:4 But let Patience have it's perfect work that you may be perfect and complete lacking nothing.

Psalm 27:14 Wait on the Lord be of good courage and He shall strengthen then heart , wait I say on the Lord.

1 Thessalonians 5:14 And we urge you, brothers, warn those who are idle, encourage those who are timid, help the weak, be patient with everyone.

So if part of walking in Love is being patient, then I/we must learn to wait, bearing any pains, and any suffering without complaint. Selah.....
