Love is everything

Scripture – 1 Corinthians 13:3

If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.

Observation

Performance is empty. Whatever fuels us in life, to do good, and to crave gifts of the Spirit…unless it is love, then it is all pretty pointless.

Application

Love is everything. Love for God and for the people created in his image. Love must be what fuels me. Not success, not comfort, not prestige, not fame, not feeling good – but simply love.

Prayer

Father, consume me with love for you and your people. Let love mark me. Thank you for reminding me to check my engine. If I have not love, then I have nothing. Thank you for loving me so much. I love you. In Christ, amen.
