In the third round of #lookoutlivingword's look into spiritual gifts, Paul hits us with a knockout--LOVE! He concludes what seems like a spiritual gifts "pep talk" for the Church with the instructions "use your ambition to try to get the greater gifts." Ok, now we're pumped up and ready to change the world by using our spiritual gifts!! But just when they thought they understood the differences of each member of the body of Christ's gifts and callings, he tells them that he will show them a BETTER WAY: do all these things with love. In fact, it all means nothing without it. This may seem like a familiar concept to us, but it would have been a radical one for the eye-for-an-eye Corinthians. However, the same way today as it was back then, the exercise and expression of love is so much easier said than done. In the tense and ever increasingly divided current political atmosphere, how can we use our spiritual gifts for good, and most importantly, WITH LOVE??
Let me know!
Walk in Love,
