A Breath of Fresh Love

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.-1 Corinthians 13:1-3

Love should be the language you use to live life. Authentic love comes from God. From your heart stems everything you do. 

Jesus is the standard of love. If you read the Bible, you see that Jesus did perform miracles and He had compassion which made the difference. He loved the “sinners” where they were.  He told the “sinners” you don’t have to be where you are; you can be better.  He rebuked the bullies, dusted the “sinner” off, encouraged them, and called them to live as free in Christ Jesus.

Don’t be a clanging cymbal saying Jesus is Love when you treat your neighbor like trash. It is superficial, fake, and not the message of Christ. You do not have to do a grand act.  Show respect. Listen to others. Don’t curse and bully people on social media. The list goes on and on. Have the right intentions to love and serve others. God said it clearly: If you do not have love, you gain nothing.
