If We Don’t Love…We’re Not Getting It Right

1 Corinthians 13:1-7 NLT
(1) If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.
(2) If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing.
(3) If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing.
(4) Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud
(5) or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged.
(6) It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out.
(7)  Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
Love never gives up
…have you given up on something, or worse yet, someone? God hasn’t given up on you; so please, reconsider your stance towards others.
Love never loses faith
…have you lost faith in someone…maybe even God? “Father, help those whose faith has been weakened, help them to believe again; in others, yes, but most importantly…in You!”.
Love is always hopeful
…is your hope fading…do you struggle to find a reason to go on? “I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 15:13 NLT)
Love endures through every circumstance
…has circumstances in life taken front stage for you? Maybe it is time that you put things back in perspective, knowing full well that God can work through any and all circumstances. Is anything too difficult for God?
Don’t walk away from people when they need you the most. And don’t wait for someone else to do it. Start reaching out for those in need. Reach out with Compassion, and a Genuine, Heart-Felt, World Rocking, life Changing…LOVE. May God’s Love always be our guiding force.
Let us love one another, for love is of God, and God…is Love.
