Every Friday I join a community of bloggers for Five Minute Friday. One word prompt, five minutes. The prompt this week is … Endure.
Remembering that tidbit, made me realize how important it was to God that we remember this truth about His love. His love endures – lasts, is unchanging, and will always be.
God’s love will not diminish over the course of time. He loves people for all time without lessening or increasing. His love remains stable, steady, and consistent in every circumstance and for all time.
My thoughts turned to another verse about love …
“Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.”Â (1 Corinthians 13:7, NLT)
Endures, according to dictionary.com means “to continue to exist; to hold out without any impairment.”
This morning I’m remember the story of the prodigal son. The father extended grace, mercy, and love in spite of all his the pain he had endured due to his son’s actions.
The father’s love endured. He loved without impairment. His love for his son never diminished, nor weakened.
The father’s love endured. May I love like Him.
God, I thank You for your love which has endured not only throughout time, but in my very own life. I ask that you will give me the strength, the courage, and the hope I need to move forward no matter what happens in my life. Help my love for You and for others to endure to the end. To the glory and honor of Your Name alone, Amen.
