Radical love

Daily reading: 1 Corinthians 13:1-13
Wednesday May 4, 2016

Radically welcoming in everyone requires that we practice the ethic of love.  With diversity can come challenges and strains.   Throughout his letter Paul addressed this fragmented and fractioned community.  Rather than celebrate their diversity and the riches that it brought to the community, they splintered and fought and pointed fingers.

Rather than throw the towel in, Paul encouraged them to push through and embrace their diversity with love.  Love is not just a feeling, it is also a verb, it is a dream of what can be.

Prayer:  God be the word of love in my actions today, God be the word of love in what I see today, God be the word of love in my words today, God may I live your amazing love today.  Amen.
