Thanks to Barbara London for suggesting
this verse check out her blog at
I Corinthians 13 : 4
Charity suffereth long…(KJV)
The second day you freak on a verse you take a section and a question or two and go at it!
What does suffering long mean and how long is long?
In the 2000’s we do anything and everything to keep from suffering. Honestly, we don’t even want to even be uncomfortable. or embarrassed. or inconvenienced. or wronged.
Nope. We want comfort, convenience, and things our way.
Suffereth long – makrothymeo - means to be patient.
If you love you
persevere patiently and bravely
endure misfortunes and troubles
bear offenses and injuries of others
are mild and slow in avenging
are slow to anger
are slow to punish
Probably as long as you want God to suffer and be patient with you
