Jared Wilson writes a great blog post on 1 Corinthians 13:

What if we looked at 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 from the reverse angle? I think it helps us put so much of our pettiness and self-interest in stark perspective and shows love as that much more beautiful.

Impatience and unkindness is hatred.
Hate is envious and ego-centric.
Hate is arrogant and rude.
Hatred is insisting on one’s own way;
hatred is irritable or resentful;
it celebrates sin, and it mocks what is true.
Hate is whiny and thin-skinned,
thoroughly skeptical,
always pessimistic,
a born quitter.

But hatred ends . . .

  1. Chris,

    So do you have any thoughts on what might have happened if Moses hadn’t stopped to check out the burning bush?

    I’d love to hear what you think might have happened.

  2. Hi Margaret,

    Thanks for your comments.

    I’m not really sure. I think my gut reaction is that he would have missed the chance to lead his nation from Egypt, but that God would have given him a different role.

    But then you think about Jonah and the lengths God went to to ensure that he did do what he wanted – maybe that would have happened in Moses case, but I don’t think that is ‘normal’.

    Have you any thoughts on that?

    Chris
