And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres. 1 Corinthian 13:13 - And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. Love is unconditional. If we could do nothing for our children but show them love and let them give love, we would have taught them the greatest tool God has in his tool belt. God gave us His Son Jesus Christ who died on the cross so we could be saved and have life. By giving and receiving the love that Jesus gives us, and sharing with one another, a child can grow from an infant to an adult and never be on empty. For those that register empty on the spiritual and emotional barometer, they are the people who live in the world and let the world live in them. These are the people who do not ever give or receive love.

We need to make sure we give our children love right from birth. If there is one thing the devil dislikes it is L-O-V-E. In tennis they use the word love to replace the 0. Zero means nothing or emptiness. If someone is winning 15-0 they say 15-LOVE. Love can and will replace the 0 or emptiness from the enemy in anyone's life. Love is a great way to raise our children. No, the GREATEST way to raise our children is with LOVE. Giving Life Ministries would like the opportunity to teach you how to give life through sharing LOVE.
