We have already officially kicked off 40DOC campaign (http://www.xanga.com/pcc40doc) .
I got my book last night from the discovery group.
This week's topic is LOVE. Simple yet powerful word.
The line that struck me was...
Although love can create intense feelings, love is NOT a feeling.
It is a ..
2. an action
3. a way of behaving
5. Sacrificing for others
Whoever who claims that he/she love but does not practise the 5 points as above is TOTALLY rubbish!
In our workbook... the definition of love goes like this..
Love is a
1. command (Jn 13:34) - not an option, else we would be sinning
2. choice (1 Cor 14:1) - not a feeling but we choose/learn/practice loving the person voluntarily
3. conduct (1 Jn 3:18) - show it by actions
4. commitment (1 Jn 4:16b) - it's a lifetime thingy.... for LIFE!
If we dont' live a life of love, nothing we say (words) /know (IQ/EQ/PhD)/believe (faith)/give (tithe/gifts)/accomplish (status/fame) will matter.
And I learnt the phrase "summa cum laude" from Ps Rick Warren. Haha.
