If I speak in the tongues of people or angels, but do not have love, I become nothing more than a blasting trumpet or a clashing cymbal. If I have the gift of prophesy and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have faith such as to move mountains, yet do not have love, then I am nothing. If I dispense all my goods and surrender my body to be burned, yet do not have love, it profits me nothing. ( 1 Corinthians 13: 1-3 )
How far is love the motivating factor behind all my actions?
This is the message that we have heard from the very beginning: that we should love one another ( 1 John 3: 11 )
Gracious God, take the little love that I have, Nurture, deepen, and expand it, until I have learned what love really means, until your love flows through my heart, until love is all in all. Through Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen
