Love does not keep an account of wrongs suffered, adding them all together and holding them against a person. That’s an easy one to see. But do we realize this?
Counting up the good I do to someone I love, with thought that they aren’t loving me in the same way, adding my good against them, is the same thing.
It is counting up wrongs suffered by lifting my good as opposed to their lack of it as I see it, and that is in opposition to true love as God defines it.
Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.
Love trusts God to reward “my good”.
Love loves because it is who I am in Christ, and it is what I do to please my God, who is love.

I needed to read this. Especially the part that love does not keep record of wrong done to us. Its something that I’ve been struggling with. This i will overcome through the power of prayer. Great post!
Praying for us both as we seek to love as He loves, be love as He is love, and forgive “for my own sake” as He does, so bitterness and anger do not produce hate within, sin worked out, and a wall to stop love’s flow. (Isaiah 43:25) 💗🤗🙏🏼
