Day 27 – 1 Corinthians 13:1-13
Today we read about Love! We find out the definition of love, and the difference between lust and God’s love for us and how to express it in the right way as christians.
When the passage talks about love it doesn’t mean the lust kind of love the oh i have to have a boy/girlfriend or sexual love. But it means the love God shows us and that he wants us to show to others…the unselfish love that is directed outward not inwards to ourselves.
Loving unselfishly can be hard for some people because you may want something in return afterwards but it’s important to remember that when we love unselfishly God sees this and will reward us later in heaven. Personally it makes me feel good when I see someone I love happy and knowing that they know their loved is better than any reward. Of course sometimes it can be really hard to see the point of doing nice things for people cause i take my own time do stuff for them and don’t get a thank you, but even if they didn’t say thank you God is saying it for them.
Think about the way you love others is it selfish or unselfish and does your faith fully express that you love others because God loves you? Pray and ask God to help you love the way he loves you!
