I was reminded the other day that without love I am nothing.
"Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing." I Corinthians 13:1-3
That's pretty strong but it's true.
We may have a college degree, a successful career, beauty, fame, money, fancy clothes, shiny cars, a fabulously decorated house, beautiful children, but without love we are nothing. In other words, those things really aren't important if we are living our lives without love or being loving to others.
But you may have nothing materially and have LOVE and then you are SOMETHING!
It's important and only truly found in God. He loves you and wants to have a relationship with you.
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16
If you already have that relationship with Him, seek to be filled up with His love so you can pour out to those around you.
"A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another." John 13:34-35
Have a love-filled day,
