A Musical Reflection
There’s a reading from the Bible that you often hear at weddings. It’s a beautiful reflection on the meaning and lasting power of love. Here’s that reading set to music:
Here are some words used by the author to describe love:
- No arrogance
- No pride
- No rudeness
- No jealousy
- Seeks the good of others
- Does not keep track of failures
- Finds no joy in wrongdoing
- Finds joy in the truth
- It endures
- It never fails
When you look at that list, how do you feel called to grow in your capacity to love another person?
Take some time to write down your thoughts. Ask:
- What am I called to do in response to these reflections?
- How will I do what I’m called to do?
- When will I start?
- Who can support my efforts?
