            What’s Love Got to Do With It

“Better Questions” 


  1. A)Am I being honest with myself really?
  2. B)What story do I want to tell?
  3. C)Is there a tension that deserves my attention?
  4. D)What is the wise thing to do?

1 Corinthians 13:4-8, “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails….”
