• “Many do not recognize the fact as they ought, that Satan has got men fast asleep in sin and that it is his great device to keep them so. He does not care what we do if he can do that. We may sing songs about the sweet by and by, preach sermons and say prayers until doomsday, and he will never concern himself about us, if we don’t wake anybody up. But if we awake the sleeping sinner he will gnash on us with his teeth. This is our work – to wake people up.” – Catherine Booth

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.

  • “God, I want to know more of You. I want to know more of Your ways. I want to know anything You want to show me through this. But if I have to live with mystery and unanswered questions the rest of my life, I will still trust You. I will still love You. I will still obey You.” – Nancy Leigh DeMoss

Verse of the Day

Sing to God, sing praises to His name; Extol Him who rides on the clouds, By His name YAH, And rejoice before Him. A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows, Is God in His holy habitation. — Psalm 68:4-5 (NKJV)
