LOVE IS PATIENT, LOVE IS KIND, DOES NOT ENVY,
IT DOES NOT BOAST, IT IS NOT PROUD.  IT IS NOT
RUDE, IT IS NOT SELF-SEEKING, IT IS NOT EASILY
ANGERED, IT KEEPS NO RECORD OF WRONGS.
LOVE DOES NOT DELIGHT IN EVIL BUT REJOICES
WITH THE TRUTH.  IT ALWAYS PROTECTS, ALWAYS
TRUSTS, ALWAYS HOPES, ALWAYS PERSEVERES.
( 1 CORINTHIANS 13:4-7 *NIV )

Dear Friend,
Our society today often confuses love with lust.  True
love, like the kind God shows toward us, is directed outward
toward others not inward toward ourselves.

Therefore we are to show others God’s unselfish love
everyday.  For it is written; NOBODY SHOULD SEEK HIS
OWN GOOD, BUT THE GOOD OF OTHERS.
( 1 CORINTHIANS 10:24 )
   
So; LET US NOT BECOME
CONCEITED, PROVOKING AND ENVYING EACH OTHER.
( GALATIANS 5:26 ) 
Instead we should be; BE KIND AND
COMPASSIONATE TO ONE ANOTHER, FORGIVING
EACH OTHER, JUST AS IN CHRIST GOD FORGAVE US.
( EPHESIANS 4:32 )

Also Friend, remember that there is joy to be found in
giving to others without expecting anything in return!  After all
that kind of unselfish love is the kind that God fills His Children
with, and expects His Children to show to one another as well.
Amen.

Have a wonderful day my friend, and let your love light
shine brightly.  For after all; GOD IS LOVE.  ( 1 JOHN 4:16 )
and you are His Child!  So smile it’s going to be a wonderful
day!

With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
