All About Love 02-14-22

On this day that the world celebrates as Valentines Day, there will be those that will go out and buy candy, flowers and gifts to profess our love for the person in their life that they are connected to. I don’t know about you but in my house, everyday is Valentines Day because I came to the realization a long time ago that I need to show love for my spouse everyday because tomorrow may not come, so live for today because it could be your last.

Today’s Prayer

Father, Your Word tells us to cast our cares upon you. Oh how we want to do that, to bring all our cares to you and leave them at your feet. We don’t want to be worriers, but those whose faith is strong to trust you. We want to bring those burdens and concerns to you and not keep picking them up and worrying about them. May this year be one of spiritual breakthrough in our lives and in the lives of those we love. May our lives be filled with joy and peace through your Spirit. May you be the center and the heart of our homes. May we be more Christ like and less like the world in our everyday lives. Help us and have mercy upon us, dear God. Please forgive us of our sins and guide our steps. In Jesus’ wonderful name we pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

Love Is the Greatest

1 Corinthians 13

If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing. If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing. Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. Prophecy and speaking in unknown languages and special knowledge will become useless. But love will last forever! Now our knowledge is partial and incomplete, and even the gift of prophecy reveals only part of the whole picture! But when full understanding comes, these partial things will become useless. When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things. Now we see things imperfectly as in a cloudy mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely. Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.

Quote of the Day

Jesus did not finish all the urgent tasks in Palestine or all the Things He would have liked to do, but He did finish the work which God gave Him to do. The only alternative to frustration is to be sure that we are doing what God wants. Nothing substitutes for knowing that this day, this hour, in this place, we are doing the will of the Father. Then and only then can we think of all the other unfinished tasks with equanimity and leave them with God. ~Charles E. Hummel~
