Someone at church gave our class a copy of 1 Cor. 13 - "the love chapter" in which they substituted the word "love" with the word "I" because we are suppose to be love. I thought that was a great idea. It is in the Amplified version, I believe. I've been praying these verses lately and they have been a convicting blessing. : )
"I endure long. I am patient and kind. I am never envious and never boil over with jealousy. I am not boastful or vainglorious, and I do not display myself haughtily. I am not rude or unmannerly, and I do not act unbecomingly. I do not insist on my own rights or my own way. for I am not self-seeking, touchy, fretful, or resentful. I do not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but I rejoice when right and truth prevail. I bear up under anything and everything that comes. I am ever ready to believe the best of others. My hopes are fadeless under all circumstances. I endure everything without weakening because the love of God in me never fails."
