Incompatible

Kindred,


"I may be able to speak the languages of human beings and even angels, but if I have no love, my speech is no more than a noisy gong or clanging bell....I may have all knowledge and understand all secrets; I may have the faith to move mountains ---but of I have no love, I am nothing."

                                               - 1 Corinthians 13.1-2


"Love is patient and kind;"

Are you patient and kind?


"Love is not jealous or conceited or proud;"

Are you not jealous or conceited or proud? 


"Love is not ill-mannered or selfish or irritable;"

Are you not ill-mannered or selfish or irritable?


"Love does not keep a record of wrongs;"

Do you hold on to grudges or slights? 


"Love is not happy with evil,"

Do you delight in getting away with doing wrongs (or get off on your own damnation)?


"Love is happy with truth."

Do you brave the truth?


"Love never gives up and its faith, hope and patience never fail."

                                               - 1 Corinthians 13.4-7


Have you given up on love and its faith, hope and patience?  


What are your true colors?  


Hate is the opposite of love; and hate makes it impossible to be compatible with love.  


When you practice hate or sin, you become hate and sin, which is incompatible with love and grace.


If your soul is filled with hate and sins, this opposes love, and is thus, unholy and is incompatible with heaven. 


Reflect upon where you are in character; and make sure you are actually following the Teachings of Jesus Christ and the Laws of the Lord.  





Why have standards fallen so low? Where is the sense of honor and duty? There is no win or salvation in the shame of dishonor and indecency....
