FaithWorking Radio – Episode 18 – Love Thinks No Evil (1Cor 13.5) http://alanburrow.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/FaithWorking_Radio-Episode_018-1Cor13.5-Love_Thinks_No_Evil-part_2-Sermon8-2.mp3 Podcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 28:00 — 10.3MB) Subscribe: iTunes | Android | RSS Podcast intro When we have been wronged (or think we have been), we want to rehearse it over and over again. And we want to add it to our film library of past wrongs. And we want to keep counting up all the films in our library regarding each person we deal with. This process of repeatedly adding up the score is what love does not do according to Paul: “Love thinks no evil.” (1Cor 13.5.) Indeed, this is what Paul says God did not do when He...

FaithWorking Radio – Episode 17 – Love Thinks No Evil (1Cor 13.5) Podcast intro When we have been wronged (or think we have been), we want to rehearse it over and over again. And we want to add it to our film library of past wrongs. And we want to keep counting up all the films in our library regarding each person we deal with. This process of repeatedly adding up the score is what love does not do according to Paul: “Love thinks no evil.” (1Cor 13.5.) Indeed, this is what Paul says God did not do when He gave His Son to die for our sins (2Cor 5.19). God had a perfect accounting of our sins,...

The same is true of people. When we are easily irritated, annoyed, exasperated, angered, it is because our hearts are already churning with acid inside. The real question is not why acid sloshes out of us, but why it is in us to start with. That’s what Paul is getting at when he says, “Love is not provoked.” (1Cor 13.5.) I hope you enjoy the radio show. Thanks for listening. –Alan...

This is Paul’s picturesque way of saying love is not proud. Pride has long been identified as the arch-sin, the root sin of the seven deadly sins, and as C.S. Lewis put it, the sin that made the devil the devil. Pride is universally despised in others and universally practiced in ourselves. We are experts at recognizing pride in others and dunces at...

That means envy was the main motivator in the wickedest act of human history, the judicial murder of the Son of God. This ought to serve as a wake up call to the seminally destructive role envy plays in human relations. It is no wonder that the first thing Paul says love does not do is envy. I hope you enjoy the radio...
