Every day, we need to go to our quiet place...

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

September 18, A.D. 2002

1 Corinthians 12:31--13:13
Psalm 33:2-5,12,22
Luke 7:31-35


A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

Today's classic passage from Corinthians on love gives the picture of the perfect Christian man or Christian woman -- patience, kindness, humility, long-suffering. Obviously, no person could achieve that state without a super-human power. And that's the point, of course.

There is no power on earth that can match the power of love. It is the key to success in every situation, every relationship, every endeavor, whether that endeavor be to reconcile with a friend, or to plan for the restructuring of society. Love is like a precious stone -- a ruby or a diamond. It has endless power to reflect the light, to give joy to the beholder. Love is life itself, and God is always trying to bring it out in us. That's what His grace can do. Without love, we truly can do nothing, we are nothing at all!
