i want to be gracious with people.. when they're crabby or sick or tired or happy or dorky or awkward or even rude.
when they believe the same things as me and when they don't.
when they talk about themselves all the time and when they don't talk at all.
when they're sad and struggling and when they're not.
and it's interesting to me how the first characteristic given of love in 1 corinthians is patience.
just some food for thought. let's love people well, friends. i believe these are steps in unconditional kind of love that Jesus is so good at. (:
