Love: The Greatest Thing in the World

This morning I opened my Google reader and enjoyed a post by Carolyn Weber entitled Christmas Gifting: Commercialism or Commission? The Giving of Grace.  Reading that post lead me on the adventure of starting to read a book called The Greatest Thing in the World.  That book is available online for free.  All I can say is that for me it is a timely blessing of God's truth.  I have been enjoying sitting and reading about 1 Corinthians description of Love and letting the Truth of it seep and soak in and through my life.  If you have a few moments follow my links by starting at Carolyn's website and moving from there to the free e-book.  You will be blessed.

Here are a few teasers from the book in case you need a little motivation:

I shall pass through this world but once.  Any good thing, therefore,
that I can do, or any kindness that I can show
to any human being, let me do it now.  Let me not defer it or neglect it,
for I shall not pass this way again.

Souls are made sweet not by taking the acid fluids out, but by
putting something in -- a great Love, a new Spirit, the Spirit of Christ.
Christ, the Spirit of Christ, interpenetrating ours, sweetens, purifies,
transforms all.  This only can eradicate what is wrong, work a chemical change,
renovate and regenerate, and rehabilitate the inner man.  Will-power does not change men. 
Time does not change men.
Christ does.

Goethe's words: "Talent develops itself in solitude - the talent of prayer,
of faith, of meditation, of seeing the unseen; character grows in the
stream of world's life.  That chiefly is where men are to learn love.

So I have not made my way to the end, but I was enjoying myself so much along the way that I had to share.  I pray you have a few moments to jump into these readings and will be blessed.

In Christ,

Hello dear friend; I love your heart!  I have been remiss to keep in touch and to let you know how often your posts bless me, but not today.  I am so grateful you shared the link to, "The Greatest Thing in the World".  I have been returning to it every chance I have had today.  It is a very timely arrival. The LORD and I have been on the topics of love & mercy a lot this year.  Powerful, powerful text and truths...
