Daily Devotionals

May 12th, 2021

God’s Word speaks to each of us in different ways. Through particular verses God provides the impetus to change our direction in life for the long term, and sometimes God gives us just the right verses to impact specific seasons in our lives. Over the next few weeks, we thought we would share with you a few of our favorite verses. In a devotional series we’re calling A Few of Our Favorite Things, you’ll hear from some of our pastors and volunteers as they share how God’s Word has impacted them.

Read 1 Peter 4:8 NIV

Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.

This verse speaks to my heart because I know how NOT loving someone can lead to the opposite.  I have been guilty of a selfish kind of love in the past, one that points out flaws and sins. But the Holy Spirit has convinced me that there is no other way than to love unselfishly.  God’s ultimate plan for us, as followers of Jesus Christ, is to do just that. The greatest of these…IS LOVE.
