10 ways to love...

i found this on pinterest and i want to share... 


10 ways to love*


LISTEN without interrupting
...but there is a friend that sticks closer than a brother. -Prov 18:24


SPEAK without accusing
...everyone should be quick to learn, slow to speak and slow to become angry. -James 1:9


GIVE without sparing 
...but the righteous give without sparing. -Prov 21:26


PRAY without ceasing
...but the righteous give without sparing. -Col 1:9


ANSWER without arguing
...better a bite of dry bread in piece than a house full of feasting with conflict. -Prov 17:1


SHARE without pretending
...we will grow to become the mature body of Him who is the head, Christ. -Eph 4:15


ENJOY without complaint
...do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become pure. -Phil 2:14


TRUST without wavering
...it always protects, always trusts, always hopes. -1 Cor 13:7


FORGIVE without punishing
...bear with each other and forgive one another. -Col 3:13


PROMISE without forgetting
...for the fruit of his lips a man enjoys good things. -Prov 13:12


I think the hardest for me is to forgive without punishing, it's so hard to be hurt and then just let it go. I think no matter how hard you try you always remember what has happened. I need to work on that because I want others to forgive me.... and how fair is it to want what you can't/won't do? "to be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable because GOD has forgiven the inexcusable in you." That has to be one of my favorite sayings/quotes/whatever... it's so simple and so true. I need to tattoo it on my arm! 


xoxo, ah
