1Corinthians 13:2
“If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith as to remove mountains, but do not have love I am nothing.”

In 1 Corinthians with a list of incredible attributes we are hopefully striving for, Paul reminds us we are nothing without love. God is love. If we are not filled with the Holy Spirit, and motivated by love, all our endeavors become religious acts or dead works. These are the works that do not remain when passed through the fire of God’s judgement. Let us pursue a life of obedience rather than acting out of our own ideas and signing His name to it. Would you want someone to do that to you?
In His love.

I am on the trail now every week training for the Virginia Challenge Triathlon. I have so enjoyed seeing a new wildflower bloom weekly. I was indulged by the sweet aroma of honeysuckle as it seemed to be blooming everywhere yesterday! It made a long, grueling, bike ride much more pleasant!
