There are times in our lives when things get real. I mean, what really matters suddenly becomes crystal clear. We have all had these moments of clarity. Sometimes from times of beauty or joy. Like seeing a glacier calve or when a child is born. Sometimes from times of deep sorrow or fear of losing a loved one or our own lives. When these moments happen Truth sometimes shines through the darkness and right into our souls. We know God is with us. We know we are loved by a love that is greater than we will ever understand. We know that love is what really matters. Loving God, loving friends and loving our family. All the rest of the dross falls away and no longer hides the sparkling diamond of love. It is stronger, more enduring, more powerful, more beautiful than any of Gods other gifts…wait I seem to remember God’s word actually saying this even better… NIV1 Corinthians 4-8 a
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8 Love never fails.
Yeah, that’s the one!
Thank you God for the gift of love!
