In The Name of Love

“Let all that you do be done with love.” (I Corinthians 16:14, NKJV)



This is a wonderful admonition the Apostle Paul gives to Christians, “Let all that

you do be done with love.” Paul tells us love must be the motivation in which

everything we do is done.


Love should be the foundation of everything we do and say. In fact, before we do

or say anything we must ask ourselves the question, “What is my motivation for

this action?” and “Does this that I am about to do/say coming from a place of love

or selfishness?” We know love is not selfish but giving. Whatever we do or say

that comes from selfish motives is not of God and therefore not from love.


Love is sacrificial, caring and peaceful. Love, as the bible says, “does not seek its

own” (I Corinthians 13:5), but seeks the benefit and well being of others. If all our

words were spoken with love, there would be less hurt feelings and insecurities. If

all our actions were done in love, violence and all forms of abuse would be non-

existent.


Let us all make a commitment to let love be our motivation for every word spoken

and action taken. As children of the Most High God, we must live in such a way

that we represent who He is. God is love, and therefore all that we do must be

motivated by God, which means being motivated by love. All that we do and say

must be done IN THE NAME OF LOVE.
