Only Love Lasts – God Calling 11/22

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a a tinkling cymbal. 1 Corinthians 13:1

SEE that only Love tells. Only what is done in Love lasts, for God is Love, and only the work of God remains.

The fame of the world, the applause given to the one who speaks with the tongues of men and of angels, who attracts admiration and compels attention, it is all given to what is passing, is really worthless, if it lacks that God-quality, Love.

Think how a smile, or word of Love, goes winged on its way, a God-Power, simple though it may seem, while the mighty words of an orator can fall fruitless to the ground. The test of all true work and words is – are they inspired by Love?

If man only saw how vain is so much of his activity! So much work done in My Name is not acknowledged by Me. As for Love. Turn out from your hearts and lives all that is not loving, so shall ye bear much fruit, and by this shall all men know ye are My disciples, because ye have Love one toward another.

And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity. 1 Corinthians 13:13
