Choosing Love rather than Dishonor

8 01 2014

21909694_sWe are in a series called What is Love Anyway? To read all of this series on love scroll back to The Beatitudes of Love, beginning on 11/9/2013. We have finished the different words for Love in the bible and now we are looking at the fifth hindrances to love, dishonoring others.

It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking,

1 Cor 13:5

To define the word dishonor it is to fail to observe or respect someone or17053250_s something. In its verb form it is to shame or disgrace. So much of our drive to dishonor has to do with a personal desire to prove our own worth, birthed out our own selfishness.

Choosing not to shame or disrespect someone when they do wrong is to choose Love. We are asked by God to speak truth in Love, in this way we do not shame or dishonor another person.

In a marriage love covers a multitude of sin and because of that love we who are married can choose to honor our spouse, speaking truth in love, when their actions are not praiseworthy because honoring someone has nothing to do with covering sin, rather it acknowledges sin and forgives.

Blessings and Complete Joy,
