MLK & 1 Corinthians 13

MLK and 1 Corinthians 13

Love: Listen to MLK’s words

Martin Luther King’s words of strength and love could be a sequel to 1 Corinthians 13. Like Paul, he inspired many during trying times by pounding the drums of love and resilience. His words echoed around the United States and around the world. He awoke many.

His words, like Paul have touched and ignited many generations. Both men sadly lost their lives due to the waves they made with their missions.

We are in time where revenge, aggression and retaliation is the connective tissue that strangely pulls some of us together, but pushes more of us apart.

Love is the way. This great nation must find inspiration in love if we are going to accomplish anything great.
So where are you? Are you moving towards greatness or are you moving away?

Are you throwing love or are you throwing rocks?

Love never fails.

Hope: Needed now

Hope needed in the United States

The United States is experiencing angst during these unprecedented times. Clashing political points-of-view, different perspectives and interpretations on the events unfolding in Washington and across the country is fraying relationships with our families, friends and communities. Our mental bandwidth gets consumed more with each new development.

Most likely, you have a position. You have a good sense of where you stand on the topics. You know who probably will agree with you and who won’t.

These tensions are nothing new to mankind. People have been disagreeing and fighting for centuries around the world over similar themes seen in the United States today. As time passes, these storm clouds fade away.

At 1 13 4ever, we go to 1 Corinthians 13 for inspiration. Today, we are focusing on the phrase, “Love always hopes.” We understand the division, but more importantly we recognize the importance of love and hope. Love always hopes.

We have love for those who agree with us and those who don’t see eye-to-eye with us. We also know God’s love for us is unbound. Its unconditional. The United States needs to channel that unbound and unconditional love. Where are you? Are focusing more on hate or are you searching for love?

We hope the United States takes a step back from the fray and takes an inward look to find the love it has and make that love the focus.

Love always hopes.

We hope we find the peace needed to heal and move forward.

We hope.
