If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.

~ 1 Corinthians 13:1 [NLT]

Without love all our time, talents, and efforts are meaningless. The Bible teaches that being people filled with God’s love is what brings meaning to our lives. The next time you engage in a difficult conversation it is helpful to ask if your words are being communicated with love. If your motive is to win, to persuade, or your tone is void of care then your words are as useful as clanging on an annoyingly loud cymbal. Love is what our world needs more than anything else! Pray that God would give you the strength you need to love others well.
