This is Love Without Anger - Day 7
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
LOVE IS NOT EASILY ANGERED!
Whew boy! This is a big one for me. When someone hurts me or says unkind words about those I love, my first response is defense and anger. According to the description of love - My angry response is not love. Even though I would like to think it is righteous anger and for the right reasons, the truth is that it probably happens like a knee-jerk reaction to a hurtul memory.
Love is slow to anger. Anger is not the first emotion we feel when we are in love.
