Wisdom For Each Day – October 27, 2014

What is the opposite of love?

It isn’t hate (although it may take that form).  The opposite of love is selfishness.  When a husband and wife are concerned only about their own individual desires, the stage is set for conflict.

The Bible gives us another way – the way of Christ.  True love, it says, is self-giving, not self-seeking.  True love puts the needs of others first.  This is what Christ did when He left Heaven’s glory and came down to earth for us.

Love is patient, love is kind….  It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

1 Corinthians 13:4-5
