Thought for the day 23

Thought for the Day

Last Sunday I spoke at church about Love. How in 1 Corinthians 13 we are given ways in which we should love in our lives and how love needs to be the centre of everything we do and everything we are.

I also referenced the love of our father from the parable of the Lost Sheep. How that shepherd searched through the rough and potentially dangerous terrain, how he looked high and low, without giving up - that’s how God searches and love us.

Then we put the two types of love together... we have to accept the unconditional love of the Father and then live out our lives with love being the centre.

Here’s the amazing verses of 1 Corinthians from the message version again for you to ponder over. God bless xx

“Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.
And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.
And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.
Love suffers long and is kind;
love does not envy;
love does not parade itself,
is not puffed up;
does not behave rudely,
does not seek its own,
is not provoked,
thinks no evil;
does not rejoice in iniquity,
but rejoices in the truth;
bears all things,
believes all things,
hopes all things,
endures all things.
Love never fails.
But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away.
For we know in part and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.
When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.
And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.”
‭‭I Corinthians‬ ‭13:1-13‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
