I don’t like failing, do you? I really don’t enjoy losing at all. I’m certain you could say, I am a competitor. I like to win. So if I want to win every time, then I need to be loving as this passage teaches.
For love never fails! It draws others in . It causes me to think and be able to hear God’s voice—even His convicting voice when I sin. Because He loves me so much He doesn’t want me to continue in my sin.
If I follow the loving path of Christ, I must forsake myself; and even when it’s hard, love others who cause me hurt or possibly even harm. This is Christ’s call and loving strategy and it never fails.
I want to win the race! I want victory in this life and in the one to come. Christ assures me that when love is put into action, it never fails. I and others will win! So let’s try it together. And there you go!
