Without Love

Source.

 

“If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don’t love, I’m nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate. If I speak God’s Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, “Jump,” and it jumps, but I don’t love, I’m nothing. If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.” (1 Corinthians 13:1-3)

 

I thought it was cool that The Message translation used the word “bankrupt” to describe a person without love. Bankruptcy is defined as the state of being unable to payoff your debts. When you think about it, without love or shall I say without God, there’s no way for us to payoff our debts (i.e. sin). No deeds, no words, nothing within our own strength is capable of covering our sins. We don’t have enough; we come up short; we’re bankrupt without God. **G.I.G.**
