“Here’s the Standard”

Good Morning.  Here’s Today’s Nugget to chew on:

“Here’s the Standard”

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 New International Version (NIV)

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  8 Love never fails.…

Further Thought: Today is Valentine’s Day, the one day out of 365 designated to show affection with greetings and gifts. However, in the Kingdom of God, love is not required on one specific day but every day. With that said, I want you to see the standard of love God requires of his children by rereading the above passage. This time, replace the words “love” & “it” with your name. 

Some may say, I can’t do that. However, our Creator knows what He’s put on the inside of us, which is the ability to operate on this level. Love is “The Standard” of the Kingdom of God. Remember, when we fail to act in love towards our fellow man, our faith in God ceases to function. Galatians 5:6 reminds us that our faith in God, our faith to receive what God has made available, is fueled by our love. I like to say it this way: no love, no faith, no faith, no Kingdom manifestation. 

Have a great day walking in the love of God and keep chewing on God’s Word.
