Love Never Fails

I am often disappointed by people, especially by those I love and care about. I was pondering the happenings with one of the clients I am working with, and how she is not doing what she needs to. How she is failing her family.

As I was driving down the road, and I started thinking about the things that are failing in our society. The economy, the government, marriages, families, laws, schools, businesses – the thought came to me from Gods word as a gentle reminder “Love Never Fails.” (I Cor. 13:8)heart-719402_1280

So many times I set out to help people obtain what they need to attain.  Or what I think they need to attain. I think when they do this, when they do that – we will be better, they will be better, things will be okay. But Jesus, He loved people right where they were. He set a standard for the people around him, but He loved them despite of what they were.

If we want people to succeed, we need to love people where they are. We need to set a standard before them with our life. We need to love them to Jesus. The reason that we love – is because Love never fails. Love never fails because God is Love (I John 4:8) and God never fails.

About Jackie S

I have been through a lot in life, but through Christ I am more than an overcomer. I am not perfect, I will never claim to be. Praise God I am forgiven though. I am rather opinionated. I see most things in black and white and believe honesty is always the best policy. This combination sometimes comes off harsh. The truth is I love people. I truly love helping others and try the believe the best about others. It is easy to find faults, but focusing on strengths is more my style, but I also shoot it straight. If it sounds harsh, know my heart is for something better for you
