Morning with Ebenezer

LOVE DOES NOT SEEK ITS OWN

It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 

1 Corinthians 13:5 NIV

There is a sinful nature in us that seeks to its own things. This is the nature that causes us to be selfish and want our things to stand first before anyone else. This is the nature that causes people to want all the power and glory. It is the nature that causes one person to seek dominating others and control their lives.

There are some rulers that are known as dictators in this world. These rulers tend to dictate every decision in the lives of people. They accumulate the wealth of their countries and leave everyone else poor. This also goes down to us normal people. Each one us tend to put our interests first and forget everyone else.

The Bible says love is not self-seeking; it does not seek his own interests or stands on selfish desires. Love tend to share whatever it has with everyone else without looking on their social status, ethnic background or color of their skin.

This morning, I want to ask the Lord to help you love more. You are commanded to love the Lord your God with all of your heart, with all of your soul and with all of your strength, and with all of your mind, 'and' 'your neighbor as yourself. (Luke 10:27)

You can show that you love the Lord by not being selfish and seeking your own things. Manifest the love of God in your life by sharing whatever you have with the people who don't have. God will bless you and show Himself faithful to you every day. We shall continue with this Series of Love according to 1 Corinthians 13 tomorrow if God wishes, God bless you! 

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Dear Heavenly Father, help me share what I have with all people especially those who are in the household of faith. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
