Thought for the Day: It might seem a little corny, but I couldn’t resist talking about love on Valentines Day. In 1st Corinthians, Paul talks about how faith, hope, and love abide, but the greatest of these is love. Paul echoes those three attributes here again, specifically talking of how he has seen them present in the people of Thessaloniki. I have no basis for my argument, but I feel as if Paul puts love as the middle attribute because it not only hold faith and hope together, but without love, neither one of the others can exist. I know it doesn’t sound like the romantic googly-eyed love associated with Valentines Day, but life-giving and life-sustaining love brings forth faithfulness and a true spirit of hope. Any relationship worth its salt needs to be rooted in love, a love that brings forth both faithfulness and hope.
Prayer: Gracious God, we give you thanks for all the relationships we have that are rooted in love. Not only are we blessed because of them, but we have you to thank as you are the source of all love. Let us continue to learn from you and your gift of love, Jesus Christ. Amen.
