Lot of times we hear people say ‘I am in love’, but the scripture asks us ‘Is LOVE in you?’ (1 Corinthians 13). And if LOVE is in you, then it has to be shown also. 1 Corinthians 13:4 mentions that LOVE is kind. Interestingly other words for kindness are gentleness, generosity and goodness. Romans 2:4 says that God is rich in kindness which leads us to repentance. Even Titus 3:5 says that we are not saved by our good works, but because of His kindness, we are saved unto good works (Titus 3:14).
If we don’t show LOVE to others by being kind, that means that we are not reflecting the LOVE that we are receiving from God. What kind of LOVE is it, if LOVE is not kind?
May the LORD enable you to put on LOVE, which binds everything together in perfect harmony (Colossians 3:14)
