True Love (Week Challenge)

Hello everyone!
Next week (Starting Monday the 8th and finishing Sunday the 14th) we’re starting our second challenge, True love. You might be wondering…how could that be a challenge??
1 Cor 13:1-7 (NKJ)
Without love...the most heroic self-sacrifice mean nothing....Love suffers long, having patience with imperfect people. Love is kind, active in doing good. Love does not envy; since it is nonpossessive and noncompetitive, it actually wants other people to get ahead. Hence it does not parade itself. Love has a self-effacing quality; it is not ostentatious. Love is not puffed up, treating others arrogantly; it does not behave rudely, but displays good manners and courtesy. Love does not seek its own, insisting on its own rights and demanding precedence; rather, it is unselfish. Love is not provoked; it is not irritable or touchy, rough or hostile, but is graceful under pressure. Love thinks no evil; it does not keep an account of wrongs done to it; instead, it erases resentments. Love does not rejoice in iniquity, finding satisfaction in the shortcomings of others and spreading an evil report; rather, it rejoices in the truth, aggressively advertising the good. Love bears all things, defending and holding other people up. Love believes the best about others, credits them with good intentions, and is not suspicious. Love hopes all things never giving up on people, but affirming their future. Love endures all things, persevering and remaining loyal to the end.
It sure sounds like a challenge to me.
I hope you don’t confuse true love with romance. The point of this challenge is to show love to your family and friends through out the week.
I hope you join us!
