Love is Not Self Seeking || A One Sentance Dialoge


Its been six months since I posted one of these. I've really missed them. If you have not read the other parts of this story, I would suggest you do that, because they really only make sense if you read them in order. You can read the first part here, the second here and the third here.


Where to next?

The post office.

We’ve been there many times.

I know.

Do you ever tire of going?

Only on occasion.

But you’re not tired now?

No.

I’m glad.

Thank you.

Have your letters been more cheerful?

Yes.

Has your friend gotten better?

No.

Then how come they are happy?

Because she has taken a step in the right direction.

That has made you so happy?

You have no idea what one step can do to a person.

Were you the one that helped her decide to take the step?

No.

Oh?

God decided to bring someone else to do it.

But you’ve been the one writing to her, correct?

Correct.

And you’re the one encouraging her.

Yes.

Then don’t you feel as though He let someone else have your glory?

No.

Why not?

Because it was never mine to begin with.

Why not?

Because I was never going to cure her.

Oh?

God was always going to do that.

But not through you?

God choose to use someone other than me.

Why?

I don’t know, and I don’t really care.

Not at all?

No, not really.

Then I’ll take you to the post office now.

Thank you.

I do have one last question.

What?

Didn’t you want just a bit of the credit?

No.

Then I was right.

What?

You’re a fool.


Perhaps. 



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.

  4. I'd like it if you continue this. If your Father continues to inspire you with more of these conversations, then just do it.

    Each one of the four you have done has given words to many of my thoughts and feelings over the last few years (even though I haven't used USPS very much).

    1. Thanks! I hope I am able to continue it.

      Thank you, I'm glad! USPS is awesome, you should use it more often. I've been a frequent user of USPS since I was seven years old and one of my favorite parts of the day is still getting the mail.
