I Cor. 13:1   Thought/Prayer: Clang Clang

Topics: 2 at end.

"If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.” DBY http://www.bible.com (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

Do we stand outside an abortion clinic and clang cymbals? Do we, while in prayer in our houses, gong gongs loud enough that our neighbors hear? Do we get out a trumpet and play it brassily? Probably not. I hope not!

But this scripture bids us take a look at our heart attitudes toward the service we perform from our hearts. We should examine ourselves to see why it is that we do what we do. Is it out of love? If not, we might as well parade around all day with trumpets and accomplish nothing.

We are to see if we do or do not have love as a basis for service. Coronets and trombones can certainly call attention to their musicians a lot more than some person quietly serving with a heart of love. Not that we should not play coronets and trombones – they also certainly be the tools of love-based service.

But if we want to truly serve, we must rise up from our base of love, in whatever form we express that love, in service. Lord, help us today to serve out of love, whether we raise our voices and instruments to you in praise, or whether we quietly pray and then go help set up chairs for a pro-life prayer meeting.

Topics: Pray for God’s help in our lives in order that we may serve in love.
