What are you doing with what you’ve been given? Perhaps I should say, “What are you doing with Whom you’ve been given?” The Holy Spirit. Love. Patience. Kindness. These are your *Givens: (a) The Holy Spirit and (b) the Fruit He produces within you.
Your Beloved has been given to you as well. Heaven sent.
Your Special Someone with whom you get to share your Gifts. This very day.
From Whom and with whom. Now that’s Romantic!
And very sexy, too, don’t you think?
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, 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
Kingdom Love. Uncommon Love.
- given: (1) a known or established fact or situation. (2) past participle of give: to freely transfer the possession of (something) to (someone); to hand over to
