Love: Our Greatest Gift

year with jesus

“Love never ends. But as for prophecies, they will come to an end; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will come to an end.”

1 Corinthians 13:8

The very essence of all that lies in the Gospel and Jesus’ mission on earth was to love. It is the one trait and gift from God to which we all can excel. A message that Jesus not only stated but walked. He cured the sick, uplifted the poor in spirit, and gave us a new life. Simply stated, all Jesus asks of us is to “Love our God, Love our neighbor.” We may be gifted orators, have great knowledge and ability to see worldly things, but all this will is momentary and all that will be left is our capacity to love.  Money, power, and fame are fleeting, but love is everlasting. During our barest moments, it is love that reconciles our existence.

Blessings, until next time,
