1 Corinthians 13:3 New Living Translation (NLT)

If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; [a] but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing.

    If you treat people right and do nice things for them, you are still nothing without loving them as Jesus does.

    Show us, Lord, how to serve people and meet their needs as you would have us.  And give us the gift of discernment to authentically be your hands and feet, Jesus!
