Jan 21st #devo....1 Corinthians 16:13 Remain alert. Keep standing firm in your faith. Keep on being courageous and strong; v14 let everything you do be done in love. Based on these side by side verses, it seems being #courageous and strong in anything, should not be done without love (true love to God and man as inspired by God's love for us). Desiring to grow stronger Spiritually, so as to lead one's children, is done from a place of love. Growing stronger emotionally, in an effort to respond in kindness and compassion towards others, is motivated from a place of love. Becoming #stronger physically, in hopes of having a stronger immune system and longer life to be shared with loved ones, comes from a place of love. Being courageous to stand against all that may impair growth and for the One Who makes it possible, comes from the source of Love.
