Do Everything in Love
Scripture: 1 Corinthians 16: Do everything in love.
Observation: In 1 Corinthians it describes love: 1CO 13:4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. No wonder Paul tells us to do everything in love, but that is not how I live my life. I try to live with love but my sinful nature puts the focus on me and not others. Love is putting other first and that is difficult for me to do.
Application: To practice love to others each day. To put the needs of others around me before myself that is the only way I can do everything in love. I need to focus on my Lord and Savior and how he lived his life in total love dying to himself. I will only find the peace in love in my life and I love others above myself.
Prayer: Dear Lord open my eyes on how to love like you do. Take away this selfish nature of mine and allow me to focus on you and what you desire of me. May I be a light to others and represent your love for them through me.
