1 Corinthians 13:5
seeketh not her own, (KJV)
does not seek its own, (NKJV)
It does not demand its own way. (NLT)
it is not self-seeking, (NIV)
Love (God’s love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; (AMP)
Doesn’t fly off the handle, (MESS)
or selfish, (CJB)
What does that mean?? It means not me all the time!!!!!
Paul was a me person all the time!!!! He wanted his way no matter what was going on. He was at the park with his friends. His friends wanted to go to the waterfall and he wanted to go on the trails. So they took a vote and Paul was out voted!!! So his friends went to the waterfall and Paul went back the car to pout.
Here is another Bible verse on this:
15) Now it happened, as HE was dining in Levi’s house, that many tax collectors and sinners also sat together with JESUS and HIS disciples; for there were many, and they followed HIM. 16) And when the scribes and Pharisees saw HIM eating with the tax collectors and sinners, they said to HIS disciples, “How is it that HE eats and drinks with tax collectors and sinners?” 17) When JESUS heard it, He said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.” (NKJV)
Ask GOD if you are “me” person. If HE says yes then ask HIM to help you stopping being that way!!
