The following was taught and prayed through during our 9:30 a.m. family prayer time with Sue DeGroot
Mark 3:25 NLT
Similarly, a family splintered by feuding will fall apart.
King James Bible
Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
Contemporary English Version
Care about them as much as you care about yourselves
Good News Translation
We must not be proud or irritate one another or be jealous of one another.
GOD’S WORD® Translation
We can’t allow ourselves to act arrogantly and to provoke or envy each other.
Love is large and incredibly patient. Love is gentle and consistently kind to all. It refuses to be jealous when blessing comes to someone else. Love does not brag about one’s achievements nor inflate its own importance. Love does not traffic in shame and disrespect, nor selfishly seek its own honor. Love is not easily irritated or quick to take offense. Love joyfully celebrates honesty and finds no delight in what is wrong. Love is a safe place of shelter, for it never stops believing the best for others. Love never takes failure as defeat, for it never gives up. Love never stops loving…
1 Corinthians 13:4-8a TPT
Love endures with patience and serenity, love is kind and thoughtful, and is not jealous or envious; love does not brag and is not proud or arrogant. It is not rude; it is not self-seeking, it is not provoked [nor overly sensitive and easily angered]; it does not take into account a wrong endured. It does not rejoice at injustice, but rejoices with the truth [when right and truth prevail]. Love bears all things [regardless of what comes], believes all things [looking for the best in each one], hopes all things [remaining steadfast during difficult times], endures all things [without weakening]. Love never fails [it never fades nor ends].
1 Corinthians 13:4-8a AMP
We are praying towards those broken relationships in our families to be healed & restored.
