1 Corinthians 13

We started ladies' Bible study for the year, today. We had a great crowd, 19 ladies. Mom started a series on 1 Cor. 13. What a challenge! We just studied the first 3 verses. Oh my goodness!
Mom and I had a talk about it beforehand and discussed the implications of the first three verses. You can do everything right. You can give away all your worldly goods. You can be the best teacher and the best singer. You can even become a martyr for the cause of Christ. But if you don't have charity, Godly love, you have nothing, and you are nothing and nothing you do makes any difference in the world.
I sure would hate to get to Heaven just to be told that what I had done, and the little sacrifices that I had made were worthless. I want my life to mean something. I want to make a difference. I want to be a vessel unto honor.
So, it all boils down to charity(love). God's love. I know that I have it, but do I show it?

It reminds me of 'I desire mercy not sacrifice...' now where is that in the Bible?

...just a moment...

Here it is in the KJB:

Matt 12:7But if ye had known what this meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the guiltless.

I guess mercy is an expression of Godly love.

~Blessings

Hey Rhonda,
Of course I remember you. I wasn't sure if your comment on my blog was from you or someone else named Rhonda. Your profile isn't available so I was confused.
I asked Bro. Smith and he told me he was just with you. He sure bragged on your and your husband a lot.
He left yesterday but he left lots of encouragement in the church. We're so thankful for his visit. He'll be coming back next year too.

Have a great week Rhonda!
