Good morning, Beautiful Ones:
This is what was on my heart this morning, please hear me.
Sometimes in life, as Christians, we want to help change the world and make it a better place. When we look at the state of the world and our country, we question what we can do to make it better.
Making a mark in this world, for Christ, is a lot easier than you may think. Start small. The next time you speak to a person, do it with love. The next time you talk to someone on the phone, do it with love. The next time you’re pumping gas, or getting groceries, or driving, do it all with love.
The love of God radiates through us. We are God’s ambassadors and representatives. The more people that we encounter, they get to experience the Love that we have. Sharing and showing love may seem like a small task, but I promise you….IT MATTERS.
1 Corinthians 13
New International Version (NIV)
13 If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 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. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing.
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 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. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
