1 Corinthians 13 – 1:3 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 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.
Without love, what’s the point? In short that’s what I think this verse says. Without love our lives don’t make sense, without love our life becomes bleak, noisy, and destructive.
Now hold up, as a girl who’s all about that single life in this particular season, I need to just define this love I’m talking about.
1 Corinthians is massively used at weddings and we can fall into the trap of thinking that love is all about finding ‘the one’ when in fact it’s all about THE ONE – Jesus Christ our God.
Head on back to that verse and each time you read love replace it with Jesus.
You see, whatever we do in life, if we do it without Jesus being the centre, without a heart that is in pursuit of the things of God – what are we doing them for?
So let’s speak into people’s lives with love, let’s serve with love and let’s love others the way Jesus loves us.
