I’m seeking to invest in what never ends.
Love is patient.
Love is kind.
Love rejoices with the truth.
Love bears all things.
Love believes all things.
Love hopes all things.
Love endures all things.
Love never ends.
The love investment.
Love is one of a couple of things that the bible affirms will endure beyond this world as it is.
“The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.” -Isaiah 40:8
“Love never ends.” -1 Corinthians 13:8
Love and His Word will never cease.
Hope will one day be fulfilled and faith will one day become sight. Love will never end. It will forever be the Christian’s response to the grace found in Christ.
We are just beginning to receive a beautiful display of color for fall. But it won’t last. The red, orange and yellow will soon turn brown and be raked up and burned.
The fall decorations will be taken down in just a few weeks.
The pumpkins will rot.
My investment in His word and in love will last forever. My investment in love as a response to God’s grace will last forever.
I will not do it perfectly.
I will have my moments.
This is what my heart longs for at the beginning of the week, though.
I’m striving to slow down and intentionally cling to them for abundant life in Christ this week as I fully enjoy the beauty around me.
Blessings to you and your loved ones as you enjoy this change in seasons and this particular season of life you find yourself in.
Wherever you find yourself, I pray that you, dear reader, will find that His Word and His love are your guide because they are indeed the most promising investments.
And it’s all possible because of His investment of Christ for you and in you.
