“It is easy for us to think that who we are is what we do. What we do, to be sure, is a gift from God. But Paul reminds us that what we do has a goal: to establish and nature what will remain. What will remain is love. Let us begin today to see our gifts, not just as the enjoyment of our contribution to the good of the church but also as that which will lead us all into what will never end: love.” (p 174)
Look around and see what is lasting.
