Post Valentine’s Quote

Love is the Greatest

1 If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.

2 If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing.

3 If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing.

4 Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud

5 or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged.

6 It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out.

7 Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.

8 Prophecy and speaking in unknown languages and special knowledge will become useless. But love will last forever!

9 Now our knowledge is partial and incomplete, and even the gift of prophecy reveals only part of the whole picture!

10 But when full understanding comes, these partial things will become useless.

11 When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things.

12 Now we see things imperfectly as in a cloudy mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.

13 Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.

Hope you all had a nice Valentine’s day celebration!

Quote of the Day

“If you think of the Bible as God’s personal message to you, then you might read it as often as you read your personal mail.”

Teaching about Money and Possessions

This Bible excerpt from Matthew 6:19-7:14 (New Living Translation) talks about the following:

  • Where we should focus our energy on
  • Why we shouldn’t worry about our day to day needs
  • How we should treat others

I must admit that these things are easier said that done. I can name numerous occasions where I think I did exactly the opposite.

Well I guess it’s never too late to start changing…

A New Home

I finally found a new home here at wordpress following my google account (which is linked to my blogger account) being locked for unknown reasons.

Life is full of new beginnings and I hope to make good use of this year by doing something I should have done a looong time ago.

And that is to read the bible in a year.

But somehow I’ve realized that I’ve been too ambitious the past few years, so this 2008, I’ve set my eyes on a goal which is more attainable.

And I’ve got the perfect book to help me with that:

It’s already the 3rd of January and I must say that so far soo good. I’m loving it!

Thanks to my wife for such a wonderful Christmas present.
