Teach Me How To Love

iuby Hazel Straub

Lord, teach me how to love myself and others, as you love. Show me how to love my enemies and to pray for those who stab me in the back. My cry is to love like you love!

Heal my wounded heart and saturate me in your love. Oh Jesus, let my first response be your love so there is no room for any bitterness but that I would be better. Fill me with your compassion and love in my heart. Love not retaliation. Your love is my shield and weapon, in which I rest. Teach me how to love!

If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.

Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.
Love doesn’t strut,
Doesn’t have a swelled head,
Doesn’t force itself on others,
Isn’t always “me first,”
Doesn’t fly off the handle,
Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn’t revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end. (1 Corinthians 13:3-7 MSG)
