The Greatest Love

Our PWC lesson this month focused on authentic love. We explored Romans 12:9-13 to discover the beautiful portrait of what true love looks like. One of our PWC members wrote the following poem several years ago and shared it with me after the lesson. I’m thankful for this poetic expression of the greatest love we can experience. This week, invite God’s love to flow through you as you encourage the hearts of those God puts in your path.

The Greatest is Love

By Lisa Simmons

It’s not what I speak

no matter how sweet

It’s not in how smart
but what’s in my heart
that shows love
I can give all away
and still be the same
I can show that I’m strong
and be just as wrong
without love
Love suffers long and is kind
Love does not envy
or fill up with pride
Love is not rude
Nor seek its own
love thinks no evil
and doesn’t throw stones
Love is not glad
when you’re luck has run out
Love tells the truth
with no room for doubt
Love bears, believes and hopes all things
Love endures
and gives us reason to sing
Two things that are closely held
Faith and Hope are great as well
But the one most important from above
Cannot be measured-
The greatest is Love

Join us next month at PWC on March 22 as we learn about “How to Succeed in Everyday Interactions” based on Romans 12:14-16.
