Have you ever noticed just how self-centered and childish our emotions can be? It’s almost like they take on a character of their own. Though most of us know that the greatest emotion in which we should act on is love, it seems like others fight to take its place.

Anger says, “I’m heated right now, appease me! Let nothing stop you from exacting the full extension of my wrath!”

Hurt says, “Look at me! I deserve attention, for I am wounded dearly. In fact, couple me with anger so that together, we can let bitterness rise!”

Sadness says, “Woe is me, I deserve for you to wallow in me. I deserve your complete attentiveness to the gloom that I offer.”

But the one that does not cry for attention, the one that rests perfectly content, is love. Love brings with it joy, peace and patience. It hangs out with forgiveness, care and protection. In fact, for them who will indulge it, it turns those from the inclination of one’s self alone, to the generous regard of others.

“And now these three remain: faith hope and love, but the greatest of these is love”, 1 Corinthians 13:13 NIV 1984
