I Cor. 13: 1-13

I Cor. 13: 1-13

 

I heard of a man who refuses to buy his wife Valentine or Wedding Anniversary cards because, as he puts it, they are nothing more than saccharin, sweet, sentimental slush.  Perhaps a bit harsh but we know how greeting card companies can sometimes trivialize sincere expressions of devotion and commitment.

 

Nicholas Sparks, a romance novelist wrote:  “Love is like the wind, you can’t see it but you can feel it.”  Perhaps, but in the Bible “love” is rarely described as a feeling.  More often than not, “love” is expressed in terms of action. 

 

For St. Paul, love is “always doing something.”  It SHOWS patience.  It ACTS with kindness.  It ENDURES forever.

 

Love overcomes anger and hostility.   It unites and brings forth reconciliation.  It binds up wounds and brings healing and wholeness to the left out and the left behind.

 

This love is not something we “feel,” but something we “do” to improve and enrich our relationship with others.  As we continue to adapt to a “new way of living” in the midst of this Corona Virus pandemic, may this love motivate us to be joyful, generous, thoughtful and compassionate.

I Cor. 13: 1-13
