Good morning on this chilly morning.
One of the lessons we have learned in life is the importance of love - love defined by God.
All our actions must be wrapped in love. Paul puts it this way: "If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing." (1 Corinthiand 13:3)
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 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. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love." (1 Corinthians 13:4-8, 13)
Our prayer for you as you go into this new week is that you will experience God's love and then pass it on to all you come in contact with - at home, at work and at play.
God bless you.
