In a Nutshell: There are a lot of things said about “love” and done in the name of “love.” But Scripture says the love that completes us, casts out all fear and is “perfected with us” enables us to “have confidence for the day of judgment” starts with God. Any good thing you do to or for anyone that is motivated by anything other than gratitude is tainted. Sometimes the only gratitude we can find to love others is that God loved us first. But when you really believe that, it is enough!
Ice Breaker: Without naming names, who has been the hardest person for you to love? How do you manage that relationship?
Title: “Valentines Day“
Some Questions to Consider:
- What phrases found in 1 John 4:7-21 would you say are most appealing to today’s culture? Which ones are least appealing? Why?
- What are some most extreme actions that one can do without love and thus without benefit spiritually? 1 Cor. 13:1-3
- Do you have confidence in your spiritual walk and your anticipation of judgment day?
- Do you recall a person that thought they were expressing love toward you, but to you they sounded like a “clanging symbol?”
