Today's Scripture 1 Corinthians 13:7

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Love is our best hope for healing our hearts, our communities, and our nation. God wants us to learn to care more about others than we do ourselves. We must discipline our flesh to walk in love like we discipline our minds to learn. We must exercise our love like we do our muscles. While the flesh wants to get even, love lets others get ahead.

Love lets traffic get in front of you. Love surrenders the parking space. Love picks up the trash of the neighbor who ran over your petunias.

Don’t ever underestimate the power of love. It will put a family back together when nothing else can. It will heal you when nothing else can. Jesus was love made flesh as much as He was the Word made flesh. He went from commanding all of heaven’s armies to sleeping in a manger. Why would He do such a thing? Because that’s what love does. Love gives. Love puts others first. Love will change your life. Love will change the world if we'll let it.
