Thoughts on 1 Corinthians 13:5

1 Corinthians 13:5 NIV "Love does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs."

Love keeps a record of how many wrongs?

Oh, love keeps NO record of wrongs.

It is a sobering truth.

But what a relief that I can let go of all my tallying.

He isn't that way towards me.

And I don't need to be that way toward anybody else. Not even a little bit.

Sometimes we get hung up on the little bits. We self-assess and think we're doing good with the big things and completely miss the little things we're holding onto. Thankfully, the Holy Spirit leads and guides us into all truth and His still small voice reveals the small things that are hidden away yet tripping us up.
