Love One Another Day 1 | 1 Cor. 13:1-3

 Day 1 | Love One Another   "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. 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. If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; Some manuscripts read sacrificed my body to be burned. but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing." - 1 Cor. 13:1-3

Day 1 | Love One Another

"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. 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. If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; Some manuscripts read sacrificed my body to be burned. but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing." - 1 Cor. 13:1-3

I find this to be completely relevant to our home life. 2018 has arguably been a very rough year for my family and I. Like many families we have experienced quite a few unexpected changes. As a result tensions can get high and the desire to only look out for "self" can be far too tempting. 

My husband and I have had to daily remind ourselves that God has called us to serve, not to be served. It's so easy to "say" we love Jesus, but if we don't actually LOVE and SERVE like Jesus (especially when it's the hardest) then is our faith worth anything at all?

Daily I find God prompting my heart to stand strongly in my obedience to the call to love others as I would love myself. To show kindness when it's hardest, patience when I want to loose it, and gentleness when I want to be anything but.  Love must be genuine or it's not love at all...
