Not Just for Weddings

Believe it or not, the passage below, attributed to Paul, was not written just to be read at a wedding. Love is of God.

In fact, it was written to instruct us on how we are to live each day of our life in this world. I feel like there are a lot of noisy gongs in our church community these days. What about you? Where do I fail?

Uber patriotism and uncaring dogmatism should never overrule your Christian walk. Stand firm with love. The word of God is a two-edged sword, yet our tongue and typing finger should not be.

If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing. Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
1 Corinthians 13:1‭-‬7 NASB1995
