Verse of the Day: Good Deeds Without Love is Worthless

October 5, 2008

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.

1 Corinthians 13:3 (NLT)

Think about what the apostle Paul is saying in this verse. Even if he gave everything he had to the poor and gave his life as a sacrifice to God, it wouldn’t matter one bit if he didn’t have love. It’s one thing to “do“, but it’s another thing to “be“. Who you are has to match up with what you do. If what you do doesn’t line up with who you are, there is a problem there.

What are your motives? Why do you do the things you do? If we really answer these questions honestly, we can discover who we really are. Good deeds without love is worthless.
