I saw someone on my fb starting this, and maybe you girls would want to join me??

It comes from this journal, but I will do my best to post each day (although I am not on until evenings, so if someone beats me to posting... that's ok by me)

Would anyone else want to do it? And would you want a post a day or to continue each day in this thread?


Today's Challenge:
Read 1 Corinthians 13 (the love chapter) and jot down some of the thoughts that come to mind such as:

What is God's definition of love?
What are the characteristics of love?
In what areas of "loving" do I stumble the most?
What are a few of the steps I can take toward change?

What is God's definition of love? Love is never ending.
What are the characteristics of love? patient, kindness, not jealous, humble, slow to anger, quick to forget, happy with the truth, does not give up, now happy to see others do wrong.
In what areas of "loving" do I stumble the most? being quick to forget, being humble, trusting, and being kind
What are a few of the steps I can take toward change? I can strive to do at least one kind thing a week. I can try to give myself more reasons to trust him.

THIS IS AWESOME!!

What is God's definition of love? Love should be unconditional. Love should be selfless and humblw. Love should be eternal, honest, and gentle.

What are the characteristics of love? Commitment, compassion without borders, honor, passion both emotional and physical, and trust.

In what areas of "loving" do I stumble the most? Sometimes when I love someone I loose myself in the process

What are a few of the steps I can take toward change? I need to practice being okay with who I am in order to be truly honest in LOVE.
