Spiritual Inspiration Now

1 Corinthians 13:4-6
Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, (love) is not pompous, it is not inflated, it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury, it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth.

This is a great standard to measure our conduct in everyday life. Are we operating under the motivation of love in all that we do…or is our motivation self-interest? None of us meets this standard perfectly. Jesus gave us the blueprint of how to love…even when faced with persecution and execution. Could it be that God wants us to learn to love…in living our lives? And isn’t it refreshing to know that God is love…and therefore always acts according to that standard in dealing with each of us?

Suggested song of the day– “Love God” on the Live to Love album.
