If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 1 Corinthians 13:1
We all know it as the Love Chapter. We’ve heard countless sermons on love and this was the main chapter. The entire chapter is worthy of a read every time we read just a single verse. Read it before you continue.
Through time, the world can really beat us down, can’t it? We get cynical and skeptical. So, let’s take these verses down to the bare minimum.
Since many a preacher could lay out this chapter much better than me, I’ll suffice to leave you with one important question, a question that can be applied to the nine evidences of the fruit of the Spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control). This question might change the way you think and act every single day.
Do you love others more today than you did a year ago? Do you love others more than you did a month ago? If you do, keep it up, and ask it again next year (or next month).
If you don’t, why not?
