1 Corinthians 13:5

Amplified Bible (AMP)

5It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God’s love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong].

Love does not think about the wrongs that others have done to them… They let it go! Because love does not seek it own rights, it never pays attention to the suffered wrong. Love lays down its own rights. Why? Because love is not arrogant or inflated with pride. Pride will cause a man to fall.

Many people have been hurt by others. Most of the time this will leave a bad scar on someone’s heart. It can cause a division to take place. No one wants to be in division but it happens because of scarring.

Don’t let the scars hold you back from properly loving people. Don’t let the scars keep you from showing your heart to others. Don’t let the scars dictate who you will love. Why? Because God is not a respecter of persons and neither should you be. Love pays no attention to the wrong. That does not mean you have to get ran over by people. It means when someone hurts you unintentionally or intentionally you will not focus on them and how they hurt you. You will focus on Love who will always pick you up.

As I have studied love I still find myself missing the mark. I still find myself looking at my scars and not wanting to participate with others. Scars are a reminder of old pain. However scars can be a good reminder of how you persevered through pain. Scars show where you were and give you a chance to move ahead. If your scarred and still thinking about your past hurts it time to get over it. It time to Let It Go! If you don’t let it go then you will never be able to properly move ahead. Remember love always forgives and forgets. Love always gives. Love is never touchy, fretful, or resentful. Love never pays back evil for evil. Let it go and then you will be able to grow and go!
