Love (1 Corinthians 13:1-13)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “love.” As each of you probably knows, today is Valentine's Day. So I figured this word would be appropriate. One of the greatest things ever written about the subject comes from the Bible. The apostle Paul knew what it meant to live a life of passion. He challenges the church in Corinth to love one another. This is not an easy thing to do, as most of us have found out the hard way at least once in our lives. That's why the Bible is so cool; in just a few words we learn how we should be with one another.

“Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.”
~1 Cor. 13:8

So I guess my question for you today is: where do you fall on the love scale? What I mean by this, is how you treat others when it comes to your daily life? Each of us have an obligation as Christians to love other people, not just the people we want to love. As we are sinners and unlovable - yet Christ loved us - so we must love others. My prayer for you today that you would look at each person you see with the eyes of JC. Look past any frustration, hurt, bad feelings, animosity, or anything else that you might feel for somebody, and remember that God sent his son because he loved you and me. And because of this, so we should love one another.

Praying for you,
