IF YOU SCORED 1-13.... Your love is lacking!

Love is:

not proud
not rude
not self seeking
not easily angered
doesn't keep a record of wrongs
rejoices in truth, not evil

You can always tell a Zebra by it's stripes. If we want love and have love, we must always be love. Love is not based on our ability to show these attributes toward people we know, or to display them when we are in a good mood. Our love barometer is truly measured by how frequently we show there characteristics to anyone and everyone.

Today ladies, take the test and see if you got love.

Be beauty for ashes


  1. Well, I guess I didn't pass the test because I got one YES; but, I will continue to lift it up before my God who loves me with an everlasting love! Actually, our test of love is greater against those we know well because we tend to be comfortable and will not watch necessarily what we say and/or do whereas we will with someone we're either just meeting or don't know as well because we're on our Ps and Qs with them initially! We tend to allow those very familiar with us to push our buttons and then we retaliate with a vengeance if we're not careful. Vengeance is mine sayeth the Lord. Cast all your cares on HIM for HE cares for you!

  3. This post was inspired by my devotional key scripture "By this all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another" John13:35. The primary focus of this post was to encourage everyone to consider that others come to know Jesus through our actions/lifestyle, not just being an Evangelist or doing church work but how we show Christ's love daily and consistently. I would agree that it is difficult to maintain a good attitude around our friends and family because we allow them to push our buttons. But in spite of how we may respond to those people in a time of frustration, we usually have a chance to make it up (although this is not always the case) because they are close to us. For the most part, if we have a Christ filled walk, I think that our closest loved ones know we know him because they see a lot of the fruit in our lives, even if we slip out of character when we are frustrated. I certainly agree that regardless of how we feel we must strive to be loving at all times because that would be most Christ like. I don't think everyone realizes that it doesn't only apply to people we already like and know. We have to show Christs love to people we don't have any feelings for. The people outside of our circles that don't see our daily walk and who don't know Jesus must come to know him by the love that we show. I can't say that this is more or less of a challenge, but the purpose of the test was to make us aware of how we are doing with it either way.
