CHAPTER SIXTEEN: WHAT MATTERS MOST.

Life is all about love.

Because GOD is love, the most important lesson He wants you to learn in earth is how to love. Of course GOD wants you to love everyone, but He is particularly concerned that you learn to love others in His family. This is the second purpose of your life.

JESUS said, our love for each other- not our doctrinal beliefs- is our greatest witness to the world.

GOD wants you to be in regular, close fellowship with other believers, so you can develop the skill of loving. Love cannot be learned in isolation.

Through fellowship we learn three important truths.

THE BEST USE OF LIFE IS LOVE

Love should be your top priority, primary objective and greatest ambition. Love is not a good part of your life; it is the most important part.

Life without love is really worthless. GOD says relationships are what life is all about. Four of the ten commandments deal with our relationship with GOD, while the other six deal with our relationships with people. But all ten are about relationships! The point of life is learning to love GOD and people.

Love will last forever. Love leaves a legacy. How you treated other people, not your wealth or accomplishment, is the most enduring impact you can leave on earth.

“It’s not what you do, but how much love you put into it that matters.” – Mother Theresa.

Love is the secret of a lasting heritage. We will be evaluated on our love. Love is what you will be evaluated on in eternity. One of the ways GOD measures spiritual maturity is by the quality of your relationships.

When you transfer into eternity, you will leave everything else behind. All you are taking with you is your character.

Time is the most precious gift because you only have a set amount of it. You can make more money, but you can’t make more time. When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you will never get back. Your time is your life. That’s why the greatest gift you can give to someone is your time.

Relationships take time and effort and the best way to spell love is T-I-M-E. Love focuses so intently on another that you forget yourself at that moment.

THE BEST TIME TO LOVE IS NOW.

Because you don’t know how long you will have the opportunity. If you want to express love, you had better do it now.

The best use of life is love. The best expression of love is time. The best time to love is now.

DAY SIXTEEN… THINKING ABOUT MY PURPOSE. POINT TO PONDER: Life is all about love. VERSE TO REMEMBER: Galatians 5:14. QUESTION TO CONSIDER: Honestly, are relationships your first priority? How can you ensure that they are? 🤔🤔🤔
