It's the first Wednesday of October so it's double sponsor day!!! Today's Word Art comes from 1 Corinthians...
I've been under the weather the past few days. I had a flu shot last week and it left me with a mild case of the flu. I haven't felt up to creating or writing anything, so I was just going to post this week's Word Art without any commentary or actual art. But God had other plans. When I went to get the Word Art for today, I was pleasantly surprized to find that the scripture verses were the same ones we discussed in Sunday School this Sunday. Then, attached to an e-mail from a sister-in-Christ, was a photo of me lovingly giving advice and instruction to one of our younger sisters at our women's ministry fall luncheon. Coincidence you say?? Not on your life. It's a God thing!!!!
So I leave you with a few words about today's scripture, paraphrased from our Sunday School lesson...
When Paul (the writer of 1 Corinthians) speaks of "charity" we should read that word as "love". More importantly we should know that Paul is speaking of a specific form of love. Paul is describing agape, a commitment of the will to cherish and uphold another person. In the Bible this is the form of love that is always used when we describe God's love. Agape describes our willful and deliberate decision to treat others with the utmost care and concern and allows us to esteem the best interests of our brother or sister above our own. We must remember that this form of love is only possible when we love God first. Love must be put into practice on a daily basis. We must constantly measure our love and ask ourselves, "Did I show love in that situation or toward that person?" And more importantly, "Am I growing?" Love indeed results in characteristics that can be seen and heard.
