This month as part of our Master Key Mastermind reading we are reading Scroll 2 of The Greatest Salesman by Og Mandino. The driving message is to “Greet each day with love in your heart.” After my daily reading of the scroll I immediately re-read a snippet from a letter St Paul wrote the Corinthian church eons ago. He said, “Three things will last forever–faith, hope and love–and the greatest of these is love.” (1 Corinthians 13:13) Og Mandino placed love center stage with it being the first skill application message he drives home with his scrolls. He reinforces the critically important roll love has in the marketplace and our lives. Earlier in the Corinthian letter, Paul gives some specific insight on what love looks like in practical living and working situations. Check it out: Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful and endures through every circumstance. (1 Corinthians 13: 4-7) Whew! Did you get that? Are you living that? Can you imagine if we all lived loving like that–what an incredible world it would be. Indeed faith is also important and will last forever. Without it it is impossible to please God. And hope, where would we be without hope?…without it we might as well pack up our marbles and go sit in a corner. But love–it’s transformative on all fronts and is indeed the greatest of all. Join me in choosing to let love be our driving force and watch for the greatest ripple effect. All month I’ll be posting ideas and insights related to love so come back again for more…and pass it on to others as an act of love.. Finally, although I can’t physically see you nor you me, imagine if you will that I am looking you straight in your eyes and silently saying, “I love you!” With you being one of God’s children also on this life journey at this time AND love is the greatest gift I can give, I do!
