For just a while I am focusing on the "love chapter" 1 Corinthians 13 because who of us does not need to have the ability to love more in their life? I know I do. I am not perfect so I read on and learn more of what it means to love. Today the focus is on verse two of Chapter 13 the New International Version.
'If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. So let's imagine for a moment that I have written hundreds of books but yet I treat my fellow man with hatred and disdain. What good would my writing be if I could not practice what I wrote about? If I can not display true Christian love all the Bible degrees in the world or spiritual gifts a person has are worthless, or at least that is what I feel this is saying.
How about you? Are you able to love even those hard to love bosses? Maybe a person whose personality is just not like yours? Let's say someone who won't friend you back on Facebook? I am sure you can think of other examples. Today challenge yourself to make 2014 the year you purpose to truly "walk in love"!
PRAYER: Love is a word that gets thrown around lots. Love is important, very important. I choose this day to be a lover, not a hater. Help me to find ways to live those I would rather hate. In Jesus' name. Amen.
