1 Corinthians 13:4-7 ‘Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres’. (NIV) Wednesday, January 28, 2015 8

One reason attitudes are so important is that they affect your actions–that is your behavior and words.
