THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
WE CAN DO LOTS OF ‘GOOD’ THINGS, BUT WITHOUT LOVE IT WON’T MATTER IN ETERNITY
So often, it’s easy to get caught up in our to-do lists of life. You might even have a SPIRITUAL checklist, so to speak, of all the things you THINK you need to do in order to please God. And we should have the DESIRE to please Him and follow His commands, but pleasing Him starts with our HEART condition.
Scripture tells us in 1 Corinthians that only FAITH, HOPE and LOVE will last into eternity. The point is that we have to adjust our FOCUS and make sure that we aren’t just going through the motions in our spiritual walk. We can do a lot of “good” things, but if we don’t have LOVE, they won’t matter in eternity. We can have a lot of knowledge, but if we don’t have love, it won’t do us ANY good. When love is the FOUNDATION for everything we do, it’s a different STORY. Love HONORS God and opens the door for the life of VICTORY and BLESSING He has in store!
“…The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.”
Galatians 5:6, NIV
