There Is Always More To The Story  

Beth Jones

"For now we are looking in a mirror that gives only a dim (blurred) reflection [of reality as in a riddle or enigma], but then [when perfection comes] we shall see in reality and face to face! Now I know in part (imperfectly), but then I shall know and understand fully and clearly, even in the same manner as I have been fully and clearly known and understood [by God]." 1 Corinthians 13:12, AMP

When we were in Bible school, we heard two particular phrases that have helped us these many years. One of the phrases that an instructor of ours said was, “Always stay on God’s side!” By that he meant, anytime you hear people share their testimonies, thoughts, experiences, opinions or Bible teachings and it creates confusion regarding God’s character – always stay on God’s side. God is always good. His character is always love. He is never double-minded. There is always more to the story. 

The second phrase we heard many times while in Bible school was this simple axiom found in 1 Corinthians 13: Love believes the best.

No matter what happens; what people say or do; how hurt you feel or how convincing the gossip seems to be – love believes the best. Love trusts the track record and character of those involved. Love is sure the pain inflicted wasn’t intentional. Love is able to forgive. Love believes the decisions, policies and procedures are in their best interest. Love looks for a way to wear the shoes of others, to try to understand their point of view. Love doesn’t believe the worst – it believes the best. There is always more to the story.

So, this week - remember these two things in your conversations, interactions, perceptions and more: Always stay on God’s side. And, love believes the best. 

Say This: “Father, I know that there is always more to the story. Today, I choose to stay on Your side and I choose to walk in love and believe the best. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”
