Week 6 – Monday Devotional: “Ninja Never Quits”
This morning, while eating breakfast, I was talking to my boys about 1 Corinthians 13:7 “Love endures All things.” Neither one knew what it meant to endure. So, putting it in five and seven year old language, I told them that endurance is like continuing to do something, even when it’s hard. And Boaz blurted out “Ninja Never Quits!” Which is a quote from one of his favorite shows, “Ninjago.”
In your neck of the quarantined woods, what or who is bothering you? What in your home is “getting under your skin”? Endurance in love isn’t simply ignoring these things. But it isn’t just losing your temper either. I don’t know much about being a ninja, except for the bits and pieces I have picked up on in Ninjago! But I do know they have a keen sense of awareness of trouble that is around them and have to keep their cool in making things right.
What does that look like for you? Pray over 1 Corinthians 13:7 that like a Ninja, your love never quits.
