Love NEVER fails!

It’s a fundamental Truth that has taken me a while to really fully believe – but now I know beyond a shadow of doubt that it is true.

I used to read that section in the Bible where Jesus says that we’re to ‘turn the other cheek when someone strikes us and pray for our enemies’ and, like probably most of the world, I’d think ‘Yeah, right!’

But one day I decided I was going to give this a try after reading an amazing story in Stephen Covey’s ‘The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People’. Stephen was on the subway early on a Sunday morning and the atmosphere was peaceful and calm. At one of the stops, a man and several children entered their coach and the tranquil atmosphere was instantly shattered. The kids ran up and down shouting and misbehaving, whilst the man sat down next to Stephen and just seemed to completely ignore them and let them run riot. Stephen calmly asked the man why he wasn’t doing anything and could he please try and calm his kids down. The man looked up at him with a rather vacant expression in his eyes and said “I’m sorry Mister but my wife, their Mom, has just died and I don’t quite know how to handle it and I guess they don’t either.”
