1 Corinthians 13: In My Experience, Love Is Pretty Inconvenient

It sounds pretty but is messy in practice.

Posted on

But in my experience, love doesn't flow that way.

I've found that putting 1 Corinthians 13 into practice looks more like fighting the current. Messy. Disruptive. Inconvenient. I have to confront my own selfishness, and in every situation, that is pretty hard. (I need God's help to do it.)

It's easy to put myself first. It's easy to keep careful record of wrongs. In fact, the entire path God lays out for me in this chapter goes against my selfish instincts.

Time and time again, I have found the answer is yes. Because I've found no other option that is better.

It won't be easy or pretty, but in my life, I've found that love is worth every inconvenience and risk it requires. I truly believe that it never fails.
