Necessary Ingredient

Today's reading: 1 Corinthians 13:1-13

One of things I really enjoy doing is baking cookies. I've had fun experimenting with cookie recipes for quite a few years, and it didn't take me long to realize that there are certain ingredients that are absolutely crucial to the foundational makeup of the cookie.

I see that same sort of thing when I read about the importance of having love in 1 Corinthians 13. As a follower of Christ, love must be at our core. Living out our lives with love is a necessity.

Based on 1 Corinthians 13, how important is it that we operate with a mindset and attitude of love? What are some examples of how you've lived out love as described in verses 4-7 this week? Tami

Love is the base for everything as a Christian. Jesus was the perfect example as they crucified him he asked his Father for their forgiveness.

Hmm... an example this week, As I was leaving the doctor's office there was an elderly lady struggling to walk. She asked me if could just get a ride to the top of the road to the bus stop. I just couldn't just take her to the bus stop seeing the challenges she was having walking. So I asked her where she was trying to get too, she told me so I took her straight there. As a result I got to work much later than I told them I would be. After I explained it to my boss, there was no issue.

We need to be each others neighbour

I have very hyper children and it has been a real struggle at daycare or school for them. I feel people give up with them too soon. They don't have the patience and love needed to handle special needs children children (ADD). This week I was able to help a friend with her grandson and he is very much like my children. My friend was embarrassed because when she came in where I was waiting for her with the child he was being loud and not sitting still. I asked God to show love for this child through me. I told her everything was fine and that he had done fine. I had worked with him through his loudness and constant moving and he had responded well (until the end when he was getting tired of waiting). When I see this child I know he is hard to handle, but I feel immense love for him and for his grandmother and I pray God puts more loving people in their lives.

Love is at the very heart of the Savior's mission for mankind--a mission that we, as His body, have been called to carry on. So, love must be at the very heart of what we do, as well.
