On this Episode 84 of Real Israel Talk Radio Defining Biblical Love Part 20, I will begin with the series of statements that Paul makes in 1 Corinthians 13:7 saying that Biblical Love bears all things. Really? What is this supposed to mean? That I’m just supposed take whatever someone dishes out to me, I suppose especially if the person decides to be mean and nasty? Hmm. Well, let’s have a look into this matter and get some direction from scripture.
Previously, we learned that YHVH (Yehovah) is NEVER happy if a living soul chooses to remain with the iniquity that was first introduced to Eve in the Garden of Eden in Genesis 3:2, resulting in a catastrophic event due to Genesis 3:6 and Genesis 3:22.
Beginning with 1 Corinthians 13:7, “Love bears all things,” Paul opens up a whole line of reasoning that begins with basically taking what gets dished out to us. Well, that seems like a pretty raw deal. Recall some of Yeshua’s most difficult words for us as recorded in the context of Luke 6:27-37:
Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either…But if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same… For He is kind to the unthankful and evil. Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful.
Well, I admit that this is a pretty lofty menu of teachings that certainly does not come easy for me and I suspect, not for anyone, period.
