The well-known love chapter of I Corinthians (chapter 13) begins, “If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.”  It continues in that vein with the emphasis that love is indispensable for life.  Later in the chapter it provides us with a list of qualities and actions which help us to identify what love is.  That is all very well but we must ask the question, how can I show love to my fellow believer this Sunday?  Even more pertinent, how can I show love to my immediate family, even before I gather with the rest of the church?

It is tempting to think that I should be more loving if I am going to church but far better is to remember that through going to church, God will make me more loving.  This Sunday, attend with an expectation of being reminded how loved you are through Jesus.  Seek to be caught up in the amazing love and mercy of Jesus.  Then let the wonder of that rest on you so that your cry might be, “Lord show me how to love as my thanksgiving for all the love you have shown me.”
