• “If I am content to heal a hurt slightly, saying ‘Peace, peace,’ where is no peace; if I forget the poignant word ‘Let love be without dissimulation’ and blunt the edge of truth, speaking not right things but smooth things, then I know nothing of Calvary love.” – Amy Carmichael

Love is Like a Diamond by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 03/01/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: One thing that makes a diamond beautiful is that it has so many facets. You keep seeing new reflections as you look at it from different angles. I think that’s a lot like love.

The apostle Paul helps us see true, godly love from various angles in 1 Corinthians 13. He talks about fifteen different characteristics of love, as if he’s holding a diamond up to the light.

Now, I know that the diamond of my love life has some flaws. God’s Word is like a magnifying glass, showing me areas where I need to be refined. When we’re willing to let the Master Cutter examine us under that microscope, He’ll help us become more and more beautiful.

With that in mind, you may want to take a fresh look at 1 Corinthians 13. Ask the Master Cutter to bring out every bit of brilliance in your love life.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
