1 Corinthians 13:5 - LOVE ISN’T RUDE OR OBNOXIOUS!
When you’re walking in love, you don’t talk or act inappropriately, ever! If you’re a man, you’re a gentleman. If you’re a woman, you’re a lady. Believers who become rude or obnoxious are not allowing God’s love to dominate them at that moment. Jesus was confrontational, but He was never rude or unbecoming in any way. At all times, He was the consummate ambassador of Heaven. We should be the same. Crass, crude, off-color comments or actions don’t accurately reflect or demonstrate the love of God, so why do those things? More than once I’ve been publicly embarrassed for the cause of Christ because of what some Christian was doing or saying somewhere. It might’ve been in a restaurant, complaining about the food or poor service. Or it might have been on the highway, acting inappropriately over the way other drivers were driving (don’t get me started on this one!). Or it could be any one of thousands of other things that inaccurately portray Jesus and the body of Christ. And to be honest, there have been times when I myself have been guilty of this very thing: acting or talking in a way that isn’t allowing the love of God to dominate. Love doesn’t do that, so neither should we! This doesn’t mean we’re to be so ridiculously tight that we can’t have any fun in life. But on the other hand, the more the love of God dominates you, the less you’re going to want to get involved in conversations or activities that are marginal at best, or downright offensive in the sight of God. People are ALWAYS watching us as believers. They may not openly admit it, but they are. That’s why we need to always put our best foot forward and demonstrate the love of God through responsible conversation and inter-action with others. Don’t behave “unseemly!” That’s how the King James translation words this phrase. No “unseemly” conversation, or activities. In other words, nothing done that is not in good taste, and not accurately representing the Lord Jesus Christ. If you ever wonder what to do or not do, always ask yourself this question: Would Jesus be offended with my conversation or behavior right now? If Jesus was standing right next to you, and you could visibly see Him and touch Him, would you still do or say what it is you’re saying or doing? Would you still tell that joke you just read over the Internet, as an example? If you walk in love, you’ll never be concerned with the answer to that question, because you’ll always live life in a way that pleases God and glorifies Jesus. So check up on your actions, and if they’re “borderline” in terms of our Christian witness, get rid of them and don’t do that anymore! Enough said!

1 Corinthians 13:4 - LOVE NEVER EXALTS ITSELF!
Love doesn’t need to draw all the attention to itself. Its perfectly content to remain backstage so to speak, and let others enjoy the spotlight. Love does not “vaunt itself,” and is not “puffed up.” That means that when you let love dominate your life, you’re not looking to promote yourself, and you don’t need to be noticed in order to feel important. Rev. Buddy Harrison, who was my spiritual father in the faith, said this about that: The way to succeed is not to fight for the top rung on the ladder of life. It’s getting down on the bottom rung, and helping everyone climb up the ladder ahead of you. That’s wisdom, and that sums up his life as much as any one statement could. Rev. Buddy was a giver, and always put the promotion of others ahead of his own. That’s the love way, and that’s the right way. Is it your way?
When love rules, selflessness rules as well. When the flesh rules, selfishness rules with it. Ask yourself how you’re measuring up in this area. Are you more concerned with seeing others blessed, or more concerned with seeing yourself blessed? Where are your priorities in this respect? Do you crave the spotlight, and feel slighted if the light is shining on others and not you? When others are receiving acknowledgement and promotion, is there that twinge of jealousy that comes with an unrenewed mind and carnal lifestyle? In too many cases, it is. How about you? Love never exalts itself, but always works towards to betterment of those around it. Its what Philippians 2:3,4 says about Jesus. Even though He was God’s son, the second person of the Trinity, he esteemed others BETTER THAN HIMSELF IN LOWLINESS OF MIND. It also says He wasn’t looking out for His own interests, but rather, the interests of others. That’s why Jesus was so anointed and so powerful! He walked in God’s love 24/7, and never let His flesh get the upper hand. Oh yes, He was tempted in ALL points like us (Hebrews 4:15), so He was tempted to get a puffed head just like you and me. But He successfully resisted that temptation, and in love, was able to keep His focus on others, not Himself. So next time you feel compelled to let the world know how important you are, and how it can’t get along without you, remember the love way! Its not about you, its all about others!
