Love Protects

“Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”
1 Corinthians 13: 6-7

Love is a wonderful thing. Michael Bolton sang that. The Beatles said it was all we need. Bacharach and David told us that its what the world needs. Whether in a song, on a card or spoken from the heart, love has power. It gets happy about truth winning out. It always protects. And what that means is that there may be times when you have information that you should let stop with you. Most of us are quick to justify our pain and lash out a verbal diatribe about what happened to us. But what if we let LOVE have its way. Let it surround the offense and enclose it. Let it do what it does best...trust without cause, hope without seeing the end result and persevering until the end result comes.

That trust is something that you can be happy about. You are protected by the love of God. Love covers a multitude of sins. It believes, it hopes and it endures. Today, delight yourself in the Lord and in the knowledge that His power, His love can get you through ANY situation of life. I guess the Beatles were right...ALL you need is love!
