Doctrines & Morals

1 Cor 13:13; "So faith, hope, love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love."

To be a Christian is to, as St. Paul says in today's first reading, "strive eagerly for the greatest spiritual gifts." And the greatest, he says, is love. Whatever we do without love is pointless. Faith without love is not real faith. Because God is love, and whatever we do without him is pointless. Believing in him and loving him without also loving all whom he loves, is an insufficient faith.
How well we love is measured by how much we care about the people who make us unhappy, those who reject us or hurt our feelings. To be a mature Christian, we have to put aside the childish ways that Paul speaks of. How do children handle bullies? They run away in fear. How do mature Christians handle bullies? We run to God for the healing of our wounds and the soothing of our pains. 
Lord, grant me the grace of discovering and pursuing the higher gift always that I may radiate your love to everyone I meet daily. Amen.
Good morning and do have a wonderful day. God loves you.
