Love … believes the best

24 Jan

Day 2- Love is… believing the best!

Love believes all things, hopes all things. – I Corinthians 13:7

I will never forget the day I read about the “Appreciation Room.” The “appreciation room” you ask? Yes, it is a room where your thoughts go when you encounter positive and encouraging things about another person. On these walls are written kind words and phrases that describe or remind you of this person. Some may read; thoughtful, helpful, caring, did the laundry without me asking, filled up my gas tank just because… others might say, forgiving, good cook, beautiful eyes… the list can go on and on but when you start to meditate on the things written on the walls of this room, you become more grateful for the people in your life.

However, there is also another room just down from the hall from the Appreciation Room… “The Depreciation Room and unfortunately we seem to spend more time in this room than the other. The walls of this room are lined with the weakness and failures of other people. It is this room where the next fight begins and many marriages end. Although the things in this room may be true… so are the things in the Appreciation Room.

The truth of the matter is this… Love knows about the Depreciation Room, but chooses not to live there. Love, real love, believes the best about people. It is reminded of the positive and good qualities and attributes more than it remembers the negative and the hurt.

As I walk into my marriage I want to make the Appreciation Room my home. I want to believe the best in Erik even if he makes mistakes. I want to once again go back to the perfect example of Love, Jesus, and use his way of loving me as the blueprint for my love. He has always believed the best in me, even at my worst. What amazing relationships people would have if they simply… Believed the best in others and spent more time Appreciating than Depreciating. At the end of the day and when all is said and done; Love believes the best.
