Anyway Love

MANILA: From a bleeding heart, here is my contribution to The World's Literature Of Love:

Someone, Love Anyway
Someone does not present oneself as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, love anyway.
Someone conforms to the world and is not transformed by the renewing of one's mind, love anyway.
Someone cannot discern what is the will of God – what is good and acceptable and perfect, love anyway.
Someone thinks too highly of oneself more than one ought to, love anyway.
Someone does not think with sober judgment according to the measure of faith God has assigned to one, love anyway.
Someone does not recognize that we are one body with many members, and not all the members have the same function, so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually we are members one of another, love anyway.
Someone who does not accept that we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, love anyway.
Someone has a gift of prophecy in proportion to one's faith but does not share, love anyway.
Someone is good in ministering but does not minister, love anyway.
Someone is good as a teacher but does not teach, love anyway.
Someone is good as an exhorter but does not exhort, love anyway.
Someone is good for giving but does not give, love anyway.
Someone is good as a leader but does not lead, love anyway.
Someone is compassionate but does not cheer, love anyway.
Someone does not have genuine love, love anyway.
Someone does not hate what is evil, love anyway.
Someone does not hold fast to what is good, love anyway.
Someone does not reciprocate love, love anyway.
Someone does not show honor to others, love anyway.
Someone does not show zeal, does not show an ardent spirit in serving the Lord, love anyway.
Someone does not rejoice in hope, love anyway.
Someone is not patient in suffering, love anyway.
Someone does not persevere in prayer, love anyway.
Someone does not contribute to the needs of the saints, love anyway.
Someone does not extend hospitality to strangers, love anyway.
Someone does not bless and instead curse those who persecute one, love anyway.
Someone does not rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep, love anyway.
Someone does not live in harmony with the others, love anyway.
Someone is haughty and does not associate with the lowly, love anyway.
Someone claims to be wiser than one is, love anyway.
Someone repays somebody else evil for evil, love anyway.
Someone does not take thought of what is noble in the sight of all, love anyway.
Someone does not live peaceably with all, love anyway.
Someone avenges oneself and does not leave room for the wrath of God, love anyway.
Someone does not feed one's enemies when they are hungry, love anyway.
Someone does not give one's enemies something to drink when they are thirsty, love anyway.
Someone overcomes evil with evil and does not overcome evil with good, love anyway. @
