Teen Devotion and Bible Verse on Loving OthersLove is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. – 1 Cor 13:4 (NIV)

I met my best friend in middle school riding the school bus. She was shorter than all the other students who rode the bus, and constantly was made fun of. The mean students on the bus would grab her ponytail and pull it and yell, “Shrimp, ding, ding”.

I’m sure you’re like me and have been in a situation where you or someone you care about hasn’t been treated kindly. It can really be hard to do the Godly thing in these situations. How do you stay kind and patient when people are mistreating you? How do you deal with those around you who just drive you crazy?

One important thing to remember is that you’re not going to becoming kind and patient in one day. It’s a lifelong process. So pick a small area each day that you can work on becoming more loving to others. You might choose to let your brother pick the TV show you watch at night instead of arguing with him. You might let the new kid go in front of you in line at lunch. Whatever it is, find a small area where you can practice patience and kindness everyday.

If you do this daily, you’ll find that you’ll become much more loving and kind than you thought you could be. With God’s help, you can be patient and kind.

**Please note, we are not saying that if you are being physically harmed by someone to not get help. If you are being put in a situation where you feel uncomfortable, please go to a teacher, parent or pastor to get help dealing with the situation.
