It’s All About Love

“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” 1 Corinthians 13:2, KJV.

When my husband and I were married, I thought I came to the marriage a spiritual giant that could teach him so much about the LORD. Since I had been saved longer than him, I was planning to teach him how to win spiritual battles in prayer, how to prophesy, how to quote scriptures and how to storm the gates of heaven and get God to move. I was so impressed with myself and my “spiritual growth”.


I kept coming across situations where I had to love people. I kept facing situations where I needed to be patient…kind…believe the best…and forgive. All of my faith and all of the Bible knowledge I had didn’t mean anything because I didn’t know how to love the way God had instructed me to. He helped me to locate where I really was spiritually, and little by little and day by day, the Lord began to show me through His Word and through my husband’s example, how to love myself and others the way He loves. He’s still showing me.

My sister, it doesn’t matter how much you can pray if you don’t know how to love people in a way that pleases God. It doesn’t matter how many Bible verses you can quote verbatim if you don’t know how to treat people right. A sign of true spiritual maturity is in your ability to love like Jesus.

Challenge: Take a closer look at 1 Corinthians 13 and see how well you measure up to God’s standard of love.

Prayer: Father God, thank you for speaking directly to my heart. I need you to teach me how to love. I haven’t been doing a good job at it. Plant your seed of love in my heart and cause it to grow and produce visible results in my life. I want to grow spiritually. I desperately want to learn your ways of doing things. Help me to be more like you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

    ‭‭Galatians‬ ‭6:3-4‬ ‭GNT‬‬ has been on my spiritual radar for the past couple of days…I believe there is a correlation and a significance in the timing of your share and GOD’s message to me… I am praying for understanding, direction and peace.
