1 Corinthians 13 for Homeschool Moms

I’m not sure where I found this, but I thought I’d share. 

                            I Corinthians 13 for Homeschool Moms

Though I teach my children how to multiply, divide, and diagram a sentence, but fail to show them LOVE, I have taught them nothing!

And though I take them on numerous field trips, to swim practice and flute lessons; and though I involve them in every church activity,

but fail to give them LOVE, I profit nothing!

And though I scrub my house relentlessly, run countless errands, and serve three nutritious meals every day but fail to be an example of LOVE, I have done nothing!

LOVE is patient with misspelled words and is kind to young interrupters.

LOVE does not envy the high SAT scores of other Homeschool families. LOVE does not claim to have better teaching methods than anyone else,

is not rude to the fourth telephone caller during a science lesson, does not seek perfectly behaved geniuses, does not turn into a drill sergeant, thinks no evil about friends’ educational choices!

LOVE bears all my children’s challenges, believes all my children are God’s precious gifts, hopes all my children establish permanent relationships with Christ, and endures all things to demonstrate God’s love!

LOVE never fails!

Where there are college degrees, they will fail;

where there is knowledge, it will vanish away.

For we know in part and we teach in part. But when the trials of life come to our children, the history, math, and science will be done away and faith, hope, and love will remain;

                         BUT THE GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE!

    That was such a blessing. I just read I Corin 13 this morning and was thinking about how it applied to me loving my children. How awesome for God to show it to me again through your post. Thanks so much for sharing.

    BTW this is my first time on your blog. I just clicked on it by chance. Isn't that awesome? God is good.

    I've read this before…thanks for posting…

    Thanks for the encouraging comments on the poems…20 the Countdown did a tribute to Rich Mullins this weekend, and I got inspired…I've written 6, and finished a couple more since Saturday! LOL…I love his music! Watch for another sad but funny poultry story in the next few days…it's been a hectic day!

    What I did with my first letters was pretty simple compared to what other people did. I just used a different font and a larger size for the first letter of each word. I'll try to stick the HTML code for the letter "A" here:

    <font size="7" face="Edwardian Script ITC">A</font>

    You can use any font you want – I just tried to use a common font so that everyone would be able to see it.

    I'm going to print out "1 Corinthians 13 for Homeschool Moms" and put it on my refrigerator – thanks for sharing it!

    Be blessed.
