Today on Perry and Shawna Mornings what it looks like to love in some real life scenarios. So first, you and I are called to love everybody always, except in traffic J. No, through the power that the Holy Spirit we can learn to love, even in traffic. We just need to learn the art of looking for the non-negative! Grand Rapids native and Comedian Michael Jr. helps us with this one. Then a conversation about Shawna’s paraphrase of 1 Corinthians 13:
I could author books, be the keynote speaker in any country and speak to each audience fluently in their own language. If I could speak the language of the angels themselves but didn’t do any of it in love, the sound of my voice would be empty and annoying. If I had the gift of discernment that allowed me to unfold even the most difficult scriptures and even foretell the future...If I knew everything there is to know about God and had the faith to speak to the created and it would obey me, but I never learned to love my coworker, I am nothing! If I emptied my bank account by giving all I own to those in need and even sacrificed my own body for the sake of Christ but am not motivated by love itself, I would gain nothing of value.
