February is the month of love and in these daily blogs we will look at 1 Corinthians 13, the Love Chapter of the Bible, and see what love isn’t and what love is.
Yesterday we saw from verse 1 that if I don’t live a life of love, nothing I say will matter.
Verse 2 shows us that if I don't live a life with love, nothing I know will matter.
“I may have the gift of prophecy. I may understand all the secret things of God. I may have all knowledge. But if I do not have love, then I am nothing.” 1 Corinthians 13:2
You may be brilliant, a walking Bible encyclopedia, have incredible knowledge of science or math or literature or history. You may have a head full of knowledge and be considered a genius but the Apostle Paul says if you don’t have love in your life, all that you know is worthless.
Brilliance without love equals zero.
We live in a world where knowledge is exploding. We have more information at our fingertips that any other generation. But we still have the same old problems – war, terrorism, crime, abuse, prejudice, hatred, violence. Why? Because what the world needs now is not more knowledge; it needs more love. Without love, nothing I say will matter, and without love, nothing I know will matter. It’s all about love!
This Sunday at the Celebration we will be looking at the how to receive and reciprocate the greatest love of all.
