1 Corinthians 16:14 “Let all your things be done with charity.”
God blesses what is done through love. I think where we have failed is that we have neglected to us utilize the attribute of love. Love opens doors, and it really opens hearts. I actually think people allow you the opportunity to make mistakes if they know you really love them. Chapter 14 taught us to do things decently and in order. The only way those two things can be accomplished is when you do them with a heart of love. Everything must be done through love. We find that love will accomplish so much more than any other attribute.
- Love will allow you to Correct People: When people know that you love them they will allow you to offer correction.
- Love will allow you to Connect People: The heartbeat of any family is that of a loving heart.
- Love will allow you to Console People: If you love them then you will be able to comfort them by hurting with them.
Today’s Challenge: Make sure the things you are doing are being done because you love others more than your own self!
