~Without Love..what's the point?~

1 Corinthians 13:1-8
"If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away."

Reading this, it all seems so simple and many of the struggles and issues in our lives would fade away more quickly if we would just understand how wonderful life could be if only we would love!
When it comes down to it it's all about love..We love God because He first loved us, We love ourselves so we can love others, and we love others as we love ourselves!
Loving others can teach us so much, if we would realize how important love really is, then it would make things so much easier, not only for us but for others around us and think of how God can further use us if only we would learn how to sow love into others..the harvest  would be so bountiful because of what we chose to bring life to!

Let's ask God today, that He would show us how to treat others by loving them but not by just loving them and never teaching them how to become like Jesus, 
we can love them and show them the path out of darkness by showing them kindness and patience instead of being in such a rush and missing the opportunity to benefit the change into them!
God has given us the tools, now we must learn to put actions to our love toward them! 
Let's show them God's love and teach them his ways!

1 Peter 4:8-10
Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace"
