What have we become?

We worked hard. Paid our dues. Put in the time. Did the right thing. Went the extra mile. Gave it our all and didn’t look for accolades or awards.

But what have we become? Toward the end of “THE BOOK” there is a passage that reads, “I know all the things you do. I have seen your hard work and your patient endurance. I know you don’t tolerate evil people. You have examined the claims of those who say they are apostles but are not. You have discovered they are liars. You have patiently suffered for me without quitting. But I have this complaint against you. You don’t love me or each other as you did at first! Look how far you have fallen! Turn back to me and do the works you did at first.”

Oh to come so far and accomplish so much but without love.

There is another passage that speaks to this dilemma. Here is an excerpt. “If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing.” I Corinthians 13.

Let us pause and reflect and regain our composure. We can do so much yet but with little impact if we leave out love.

The challenge from Paul the apostle is clear, “Do everything with love.” 1 Corinthians 16:14.

With love, my love. With love.
