- If I can teach a good Sabbath School class and even preach a sermon, but can’t love the church members, I am only a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.
- If I have good intuition and can figure out unusual personalities and even have giant-sized faith, but have no love, I am nothing.
- If I give my clothes to the poor and work at the Community Service Center long hours ’til I’m ready to drop, but have not love, I have no advantage.
- Love means patience with my children, kindness and support for my husband and his ministry, and unwavering devotion to God. It means I don’t envy the best musicians in the church or brag about the things I can do.
- Love means I’m polite, not trying to get the best for myself. It means I keep my cool and do not keep records on the church members who offend me or who criticize my husband.
- Love doesn’t get pleasure from church gossip but celebrates the good news of babies, weddings, and baptisms.
- I put forth every effort to protect my husband’s reputation, trust his judgment, hope for success, and keep persevering in ministry.
- God’s love never fails. However, the time may come when nominating committees and church boards cease to exist and even sermons aren’t preached.
- Now I have limited understanding, but when Christ comes, all my questions will be answered.
- When I was a little girl, I looked forward to getting married. I even wanted to marry a preacher. And now I really do live in the parsonage and have exciting opportunities for ministry.
- Some days I reflect Christ’s life poorly, but as I see His love more clearly, I want others to get a better picture of Christ through me.
- Here are the enduring qualities: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.
