Father, when I feel inadequate with what I have achieved in life or what I have or what I know, may I remember what you consider success.
Let me relax under the blessing of what you deem is most important to give: love.
Love is greater than Bible knowledge or having all the answers.
It is greater than my achievements, titles, or accolades.
It is grander than the size of my home.
It is more impressive than my life being all perfect and tidy.
Let me never forget that nothing is greater than love.
Today may I be faithful to cultivate love with those you put in my path. May each person leave my presence feeling loved.
May I remember to love others as you have loved me—and this includes not enabling abuse.
I close this prayer today by speaking truth from your Word. May this truth settle in my soul—to love is to succeed!
“If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing. If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing. . . . Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love” (1 Corinthians 13:1-3).
(Pray God’s Word: 1 Corinthians 13)
