The 02/14/13 Joy Jar

13 Feb

Many are focused on Valentine Day. Will they get flowers, jewelery, and/or candy. Will there be a romantic evening or day. The greeting card companies, jewelers, and chocolatiers promote the holiday, as they should. It is good to show affection for those one loves. Shouldn’t that same, love, affection, and respect be shown every day? There is nothing wrong with an extra special day, but shouldn’t there be a baseline? Today’s deposit in the ‘Joy Jar’ is 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, the truest expression of love.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

New International Version (NIV)

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
