Good evening everybody. I hope your Sunday was one of rejoicing in the love of God. Welcome back. Here we are on Day 6, Fact #6 to share Love’s Way on Love and Valentine’s Day. Fact #6 is: LOVE IS NOT IRRITABLE. Wow, many of us may need to take a deeper look at this word, irritable. I mean, who doesn’t get irritable from time to time! That is, who doesn’t get annoyed, upset, moody, grumpy, cranky, impatient, or even snappy at times? Considering these, I don’t think many hands would go up, even mines. With that said, I believe LOVE IS NOT IRRITABLE is referring to something much deeper. I believe it’s referring to how the love of Christ should be displayed or modeled. God’s love should be displayed with patience, calmness, peacefulness, good temperedness, restfulness in obedience to Him; not with irritability.
Also, modeling God’s way of love, we will not be easily upset nor easily angered. If, however, you’re struggling with irritability… physically, mentally, domestically, or in any other way, be assured I am not here to judge. I am here to inform, encourage, and hopefully motivate you to love God’s way, as we come closer to celebrating Love and Valentine’s Day. As you recline for the evening in your favorite place, I pray you rest in this fact, LOVE IS NOT IRRITABLE; and that God can change the most irritable heart into one of peace through His Word.
Scripture reference: “…It is not irritable…” 1 Corinthians 13:5c
I hope you had a great weekend. And I’m looking forward to seeing you on Monday. Thank you for joining in, and I pray you have a lovely and restful night. May the blessing s of the Lord be with you always.
