Real Love

You know the chapter.  You have heard it read in multiple weddings.  People who are not very familiar with the Bible know this one along with John 3:16 and Psalm 23, which they see behind goal posts at football games and hear at funerals respectively.
Real Love
I am referring, of course, to 1 Corinthians 13, the love chapter.  I just checked my email and sure enough got a 1 Corinthians 13 card from one of the vendors whose product I use daily.

My wife prayed through the first part of the chapter before we ate supper.  It is a passage to which we return time and again.

Today it would be a really good idea to pray through 1 Corinthians 13 for your relationship with your spouse, and for your relationship with your kids.

Do it slowly.  One of the challenges with passages we know well is that we tend to fast forward through them.  Slow down.  Really consider the weight of what Paul is saying and how it affects your attitude and behavior towards those whom you love.

You will be glad you did.
