If you could identify the way people treat one another lately, would you characterize it as loving? I imagine you wouldn’t. What have we seen? A nation at war, not from without but from within. A people who have polarized themselves on the grounds of politics, color, science, beliefs, gender, and so on. Love does not define us, our differences define us.
In 1 Corinthians, the apostle Paul told the church at Corinth there is a better way to live: Living out Christ’s love. We can live a better way by living out Christ’s love.
