A Daily Devotion for Monday, July 25



I Corinthians 16:13-14


Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. Do everything in love.



I do think about the fact that God is the reason I am able to do anything at all- work or otherwise. And I know God sees all that I do. Until reading this today, I thought about doing the best job I can do, working as if every task were being done for God. But this verse reminds me I am to work “in love”. So, every task I perform is a “thank-you” and an expression of my love for God. That will take some discipline on my part.


God above, today I turn over this day to you, with thanks. All I do, all I can do, is for you. Amen

1 Corinthians 16:13–14 Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong. And do everything with love. And do everything with love. If only we would, how different the world would be. You can’t truly love and start war. You can’t truly love and murder and rob people. This list Goes on and on down to the simplest things we do, even when we look the other way when we should show love. As Christians, we need to remember this verse (14)because we are the example people need to see. Prayer: gracious God remind me, always, to do everything with love. Everything! Amen

1 Corinthians 16:13-14

Be on our guard, stand firm in the faith, be men of courage.be strong. do everything in love.

These words were spoken to the Corinthians while waiting for Paul’s never visit.

From start to finish God’s word encourages us to let everything we do be done in love. This is the example Jesus set for us throughout his life and ministry while on earth. I truly desire to love others the way God loves me (easier said than done.) I need to fill my mind with kind loving,unselfish and generous thoughts. I need to take a few minutes each morning and ask God to show me what I can do for someone el…

1 Corinthians 16:13-14 Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. Do everything in love.


In this verse Paul is telling me that love is very important in everything we do. Love is doing what is right from God’s view. Working on being responsible, honest, loyal and faithful to God is so very important in this life. Love is the key to success in this life with Jesus.


Dearest Lord, thank you for giving me the tools to know how you would like me to be. Your love for me shines down and gives me the tools to live my life as you would like. Thank you for all your blessings. In Jesus name I…

I Corinthians 16:13-14 At first, the juxtaposition of being on guard, standing firm, courage and strength with love may seem odd. As I thought more about it, I realized how much these qualities are required in our workplace and else where. To love as God loves takes all these things because it goes against the grain of our fallen nature, not to mention the world’s blindness to love as string or courageous. I am inspired by today’s lesson to go out and try to live it.


Prayer - Loving God, grant me the watchfulness, fortitude, strength and courage I need to love as You love, glorifying Your name in the process. Amen
