1 Corinthians 16:14 – Let all that you do be done in love.
How ironic that self-isolation and social distancing, refraining from handshakes and hugs, canceling church gatherings, and not visiting the elderly or sick can be deeds of love! On the other hand, love calls for personally-interacting with the coronavirus-infected on the part of first responders, medical professionals, and family caregivers.
Love and not selfishness or greed can be our motivation in saving and wisely managing financial resources, so that we may not enburden others but provide for our own households and have something to share with those in need (Ephesians 4:28).
Have you ever before thought about washing your hands in love, or considered disinfecting contact surfaces or sneezing into your sleeve as acts of love?
All of these actions can be infused with the power and radiate the glory of Christ, when done in love!
Whom will you tell today, “I love you!,” as you wash your hands, spray your doorknobs or countertops, or wave at from a safe distance?
