Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.
How Important Is Love?
It is virtually impossible to exaggerate the importance of love. Nothing is more basic to true spirituality that this singular virtue. Nothing is more central to Christian living. At the very heart of authentic discipleship is love. Without love, we are nothing.
Love meets every requirement of the divine standard.
Love is not a secondary matter—it is a primary matter. Love is never incidental. It is fundamental.
