“Do everything is love.”
- 1 Corinthians 16:14
Love must be the motivating force behind all that we endeavor to do in the name of the Lord. This concept may appear overly simplistic without properly discerning the sacred blessedness attached to doing all things from a space of love in contrast to merely performing actions from a mechanical framework. We are admonished in the 13th chapter of 1 Corinthians of love’s preeminence over all actions and noble deeds and the uselessness of those things without it. Simply articulated, if love isn’t the primary influence that catalyzes everything that we do we have fallen short of God’s purpose for our lives.
