Love Never Gives Up

1 Corinithians 13 reminds us that love never gives up.

I am a mother of a defiant teenage son.   It’s this biblical quote that continually pops into my head as I struggle with him.   In general, parenting teens is a struggle for every parent – some parents struggle more than others, and some teenagers are just more of a struggle.

I think this wisdom from the Bible is useful in many aspects of our lives – certainly in marriage, pursuing our passions and in any of our relationships.   Keep it in the back of your head, pray on it, be mindful that love never gives up.  Don’t give up on the people and passions that you love.  The Bible tells us this.   The Bible is full of wisdom aimed at leading us  along our earthly path – if only we choose to listen and accept it.

Lord,

You tell us that love never gives up.  Help me to never give up on my loved ones, no matter how defeated I feel.  Help me to never loose faith in my abilities.   Help me to be a witness of your love and mercy.

-Amen
