Love Should Be Our Goal

They say that repetition is important in communication. So, I’m repeating the topic that my post was on yesterday; the subject of love. I Corinthians 13 is known as the love chapter. I Corinthians 14 deals with tongues. But as Paul begins the 14th chapter he writes, “Let love be your highest goal!”
Paul is explaining the various spiritual gifts but he reminds the Corinthians, if they aspire to a certain spiritual gift, love should be their highest goal. The same is true for us.
Christians should be marked by love. Our Master, our Lord was known for love. Jesus loved people; He forgave people. He gave His life on the cross to forgive the sins of all people.
Jesus talked with the woman at the well. He forgave Peter. He called Matthew. He was and is known for love. Love should drive all that we do. It should permeate our lives.
Instead of judging, gossiping, criticizing and condemning, we should be marked by love. Paul said, “the greatest of these is love.”
Today, tomorrow and every day, may the love of Christ be real in our lives.
