TOPIC: USELESS WITHOUT LOVE

Our Daily Bread 16th July 2022 ODB Devotional || Bible Verse

If I give all I possess to the poor . . . but do not have love, I gain nothing. 1 Corinthians 13:3

Our Daily Bread 16 July 2022 ODB Devotional || Today’s Scripture: 1 Corinthians 13:1–7

READ || Our Daily Bread 16 July 2022 ODB Devotional || INSIGHT

After taking the pieces for my special-order table from the box and laying them out before me, I noticed something wasn’t quite right. The beautiful top for the table and other parts were accounted for, but it was missing one of the legs. Without all of the legs, I couldn’t assemble the table, rendering it useless.

It’s not just tables that are useless when missing one vital piece. In the book of 1 Corinthians, Paul reminded his readers that they were missing one essential component. The believers possessed many spiritual gifts but lacked love.

Using exaggerated language to emphasize his point, Paul wrote that even if his readers had all knowledge, if they gave away every single thing they owned, and even if they willingly suffered hardship, without the essential foundation of love, their actions would all amount to nothing (1 Corinthians 13:1–3). Paul encouraged them to always infuse their actions with love, movingly describing the beauty of a love that always protects, trusts, hopes, and perseveres (vv. 4–7).

As we use our spiritual gifts, perhaps to teach, encourage, or serve in our faith communities, remember that God’s design always calls for love. Otherwise, it’s like a table missing a leg. It can’t achieve the true purpose for which it was designed. By:  Lisa M. Samra

Bible in a Year: Psalms 16–17, Acts 20:1–16
