Just Making Noise by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 06/28/11

(noisy children in background)

“All right. We have five minutes for a Bible story, and then you kids are going to bed! (pages turning) Let’s see . . . ‘One day God told Jonah . . .’ Franky! Get over here and sit down!”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: You may be teaching your children the truths of the Bible . . .

“‘God told Jonah to go to Nineveh . . .’ Sarah! I can’t wait till you kids are in bed!”

Nancy: . . . but are you doing it out of love? The apostle Paul says, “Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am become as sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.”

If I’m teaching others God’s Word, but I don’t have love, what does Paul say? I’m just making noise.

“Uhhh! I’m trying to read here!”

Nancy: Are you serving from a heart of love? Ask God to fill you with His love. Ask Him to love others through you.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
