Love is patient and kind

Dear Lord,
Because love is patient: 
Help me to be slow to judge, 
but quick to listen, 
hesitant to criticize, 
but eager to encourage, 
remembering your endless patience 
with me.

1 Corinthians 13:4

Love is patient, 
love is kind. 
It does not envy, 
it does not boast, 
it is not proud.
