Life Without Conditions

What if we loved for love's sake?

What if we loved because God love's us?

What if we did good not because good is done to us but because doing Good is what Jesus commanded, it is what is right.

What if life had no conditions?

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.  Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.  - 1 Corinthians 13:1-8

It's just a thought...



  1. Loving for love's sake. What a world we would have. But I'm one...each reader is one...we can make a difference in our world just by loving because God commanded it. A good challenge!

  2. Pamela, Thank you! A hard challenge too. I know I struggle at times, I want to love based on feelings. I have to remember and be thankful that God doesn't love just on feelings!
