1 Corinthians 13 is often called The Love Chapter because it explains what unconditional, agape love looks like. God showed us the perfect example of His unconditional love when He sent His only Son, Jesus Christ to die for our sins. God’s love is a remarkable thing, and through His example and by His strength, we can learn to love others the way Christ loves us. God tells us to not only love our families, but our neighbors, and even our enemies. It’s certainly not an easy task, but we have a great example to follow: “But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8, NIV). Stop and think about the way you treat others throughout the day. Do you treat them with love and kindness? With indifference? With rudeness or anger? Even the smallest gesture or word of encouragement can be used to show God’s love to someone else.
On a side note, I thought it was noteworthy that I reached 1000 pageviews yesterday! I would like to thank two of my best friends (they know who they are) and a handful of family and friends I’ve met through church who have been my loyal readers since I started this blog. They are the ones who brought the first 600 views, and the rest have come with this challenge. Thank you all who have come to visit and I hope that you have enjoyed it so far!
