“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.” (1 Corinthians 13:4 NIV)
“A new command I give you: love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” (John 13:34 NIC)
I saw the following on Facebook yesterday. Read them carefully and let them really sink in. You may just need to hear one or two today:
“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the moments that take our breath away. Think about this. You may not realize it, but it’s 100 percent true.
1. At least 15 people in this world love you in some way.
2. A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone, even if they don’t like you.
3. Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you before they go to sleep.
4. You mean the world to someone.
5. If not for you, someone who may not be living.
6. You are special and unique.
7. Have trust, sooner or later you will get what you wish for, or something better.
8. When you make the biggest mistake ever, something good can still come from it.
9. When you think the world has turned its back on you, take a hard look: you most likely turned your back on the world and the people who love and care for you.
10. Someone that you don’t even know exists loves you.
11. Always remember the compliments you received. Forget about the rude remarks.
12. Always tell someone how you feel about them; you will feel much better when they know and you’ll both be happy.
13. If you have a great friend, take the time to let them know that they are great.”
Interesting or not, your decision. I thought it was very interesting read. Especially #11. Take the compliments and leave the rude ones behind. It’s always been hard for me to accept a compliment. Mom was the only one to compliment me growing up that I remember. So read them, take them or move on. Your choice.
But always remember that God loves you unconditionally.
