DAILY BIBLE PROMISE

** God put His Cross where His Mouth Was - all along! ** Today's Bible Promise is ... "I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye." Ps 32:8

  • Without Love we are just a noise. We can know all the scriptures and understand great things but without Love it is all to no avail. God IS Love.

  • Correct! However, 1 Cor 13 (the 'LOVE Chapter') should never be quoted AT others (as though one is holding it as a standard for others - as a judge of their conduct). To do so is the highest form of hypocrisy.

    The Standards of 1 Cor 13 are those "impossibilities" Jesus made clear He would expect only from Faith (WITH God!). (see Mt 19:26, Mk 10:27)

    In my life I have rarely heard an individual quote 1 Cor 13 (or any portion of it) in the humble admonition of self application which was clearly implied by Paul. Indeed, that this was Written to the Corinthians (of all people) ought to make this point.

    Whatever lessons ("Light") which might be learned from these Texts, let us hope we have the humble sincerity ("Salt") to take them to heart in self-application - and leave any applications-to-others to God - alone!
