1 Corinthians 13:4-7New International Version (NIV)
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
My God is a God of love. And love has no measures.
I have a distant memory, so distant that I’m not entirely sure whether this image in my mind ever was real or just a dream. Regardless, it feels real, it feels visceral, and it’s sat with me for the better part of 15 years now. It was during P.E. in middle school, not only one of the most challenging developmental stages in any child’s life, but also one of the most sensitive times of the school day. Making oneself vulnerable, especially in the context of sports and physical activity, is hard for lots of kids. It visibly reveals weakness. It highlights insecurities.
Especially when you’re a boy.
