Love One Another Day 4 | 1 Cor. 13:8-11
I look at this photograph I took of my husband and my daughter and it brings with it both joy and pause. As a mother, I can give my daughter the best education in the world, the best home, the safest neighborhood, ensure she is well traveled and give her everything her tiny little heart could possibly desire. But...and that's a very big but, if I don't show her love in everything I do, real genuine love then all of those material blessings won't help her at all. In fact, they may even become her travesty.
How many sad stories have we heard of celebrity children who seemed to have it all, taking their own lives tragically? I have to wonder what their private life with their families really looked like? They may have had it all, but one thing is very clear...love...wasn't one of them. People who truly feel loved, thrive in this life.
I am reminded that everything I do for my family today MUST be in genuine love, or it might as well mean nothing...in the end only love stands.
