"Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates a brother or sister is still in the darkness. Anyone who loves their brother and sister lives in the light, and there is nothing in them to make them stumble. But anyone who hates a brother or sister is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness. They do not know where they are going, because the darkness has blinded them." 1 John 2:7-11
Rob Bell's new book came out this week and has been surrounded by a bunch of controversy- I will have to read it before I make a judgement call but his title got me thinking...
"Love never fails." 1 Corinthians 13:8a
Today I am trusting God that love will win in my household,
among my children,
among my siblings,
among my husband and I,
among the Wana tribe,
among my small group on Tuesday,
our youth group on Wednesday.
It always has,
I've seen it,
I've tasted it.
I've fought it- I've surrendered to it.
...and even still I struggle with it...
I am trusting God for this in some very specific areas of my life right now.
Thank you Lord for Your love poured out on me.
Thank you Lord for the love I see trickling through relationships
I thank You in advance for the outpouring of love among those dearest to my heart.
I thank you Lord for being LOVE.
So what about you- are choosing to let love win?
How have you seen love win?
"If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing." 1 Corinthians 13:1-3
