• “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

Loving Sacrifice by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 01/06/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: The apostle Paul wrote, “Though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.” He says that our sacrifices have no spiritual significance if they’re not motivated by love.

Let me offer a modern paraphrase:

“Though I keep a spotless house and though I’m faithful in church attendance and though I work in the church nursery every other Sunday and though I lead a Bible study or teach a Sunday school class and though I homeschool my kids, and all that that requires, if I do it without love, I am nothing. And if I make enormous sacrifices for my family but do it out of a sense of obligation or a desire to impress rather than love, it’s worth nothing.”

Do you want your life to count for something? Ask God to fill you with His love.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
