Corinthians 13 GOD’S
WORD Translation (GW)
may speak in the languages of humans and of angels. But if I don’t have love, I
am a loud gong or a clashing cymbal. 2 I
may have the gift to speak what God has revealed, and I may understand all
mysteries and have all knowledge. I may even have enough faith to move
mountains. But if I don’t have love, I am nothing. 3 I
may even give away all that I have and give up my body to be burned.[a] But if I don’t have love, none of these
things will help me.
is patient. Love is kind. Love isn’t jealous. It doesn’t sing its own praises.
It isn’t arrogant. 5 It
isn’t rude. It doesn’t think about itself. It isn’t irritable. It doesn’t keep
track of wrongs. 6 It
isn’t happy when injustice is done, but it is happy with the truth. 7 Love
never stops being patient, never stops believing, never stops hoping, never
never comes to an end. There is the gift of speaking what God has revealed, but
it will no longer be used. There is the gift of speaking in other languages, but
it will stop by itself. There is the gift of knowledge, but it will no longer be
used. 9 Our
knowledge is incomplete and our ability to speak what God has revealed is
incomplete. 10 But
when what is complete comes, then what is incomplete will no longer be
used. 11 When
I was a child, I spoke like a child, thought like a child, and reasoned like a
child. When I became an adult, I no longer used childish ways. 12 Now
we see a blurred image in a mirror. Then we will see very clearly. Now my
knowledge is incomplete. Then I will have complete knowledge as God has complete
knowledge of me.
these three things remain: faith, hope, and love. But the best one of these is
Personal success in life for me is to be loved, respected, and appreciated most by the one who calls me husband and the two who call me daddy. I am honored to be the son of a fisherman and humbled to be a fisherman (and a shepherd) for the Son. To help others minimize future regrets is my joy-description. Ultimately, I only exist so that Christ can manifest Himself in/through me. In fact, for me, the Secret of Life is found in these 7 words from The New Testament in Colossians 1:27 -- "Christ in you, the hope of glory." I do not consider myself to be "religious" but I wholeheartedly believe that "when relationship RULES, there's little need for rules!" My first published book was released by Beacon Hill Press, Kansas City, on August 6, 2009. It is titled "Relational Leadership -- What I learned from a Fisherman about Leading a Church." My second book from Beacon Hill Press was released in 2013. Co-written with Dr. Brian Charette it is titled "The Stress Factor -- Finding Rest in an Uneasy World." Finally, not to forget, I was master to a 13-year-old Beagle who passed in 2016 -- The Oreo Pup. I miss him. "...and i wait." Psalm 5:3 GW

From Cradle to the Cross
From His first cry in the manger to His final cry on the Cross, Jesus lived and lives again with His arms-opened-wide saying, "Come to Me!"
