Love is our greatest treasure. Since the beginning of time, man and woman have come together in an unbreakable covenant. This is one of God’s most wonderful gifts to us here on earth. There is nothing else like the love that God has for us.
Webster’s dictionary defines love as "a feeling of strong or constant affection for a person." God's definition of love is so much greater than that. It is not just affection or sexual desire, it is an action that we live out.
Gods word says “Love is patient and kind, it does not envy or boast, it is not arrogant or rude, it does not insist on its own way, it is not irritable or resentful, it does not rejoice at wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends." - 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
We are so inspired by this verse. It sheds light on how important it is to love in the way God has shown us through His Word.
Love is the most gentle feeling that we express. It brings beauty to our lives and our relationships, but also gives joy to others. If we live without love, we live for nothing.
Earlier in 1 Corinthians 13:1-4, we are told that, "If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing".
These verses have inspired us to create our art in the spirit of love. We pray that God would use our brush and nib to spread the love that only He can give. Whatever you may be doing today, or this week, we pray that you too would be inspired to do it in love.
