“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or proud or rude. It does not demand it’s own way. It is not irritable, and keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always helpful, and endures through every circumstance.” ~1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Love is patient, kind, always helpful, and endures every circumstance.
Love is not jealous, proud, rude, or irritable.
Love does not demand its own way or keep a record of being wronged.
Love never gives up and never loses faith.

Wow, what a list!

So many things spoke to me when I read this scripture passage today, but one truly stood out to me: love keeps no record of being wronged.

I have always heard it said that women have long memories. In the heat of an argument, it is said that a woman can quote word for word what you said 20 years ago. Not only does she remember what you said but how you said it, and what you were wearing when you said it. Well ok, that may be a bit of an exaggeration.

However, I feel this applies to everyone, not just women. It certainly hits home with me. Love keeps no record of being wronged!

Let’s challenge ourselves the next time we start to say, “Remember when…” or “You said…” or “You did…” to forgive and STOP keeping a record of being wronged.
