Virtue Is The Language Of Love

Virtuousness (righteousness), is the language of love...

Preach the gospel at all times and when necessary, use words.St. Francis of Assisi
For the kingdom of God is not in word (talk) but in power (action).1 Corinthians 4:20
Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.1 Corinthians 13:4-10

From the pride of their flesh, the tares babble unintelligibly and proudly think they're speaking in tongues. But the Holy Spirit doesn't cause you to babble gibberish. If you read the scriptures, when it came upon the disciples at Pentecost, nobody heard them babble gibberish, but everyone heard them speak in their own native tongue. That's how clearly God (True Love) wants to be heard and understood.

And when this sound occurred, the multitude came together, and were confused, because everyone heard them speak in his own language.Acts 2:6

Many years ago, I came across a group of men, the leader of which was a Queen's Counsel (lawyer), who thought he was Jesus Christ and he had an offsider, who thought he was the Holy Ghost, and they had twelve millionaires and businessmen, who thought they were the apostles. He would speak in tongues, though I called it flapping in thongs (Australian for flip flops) and his offsider would "interpret". The pure gibberish that came out of them...

But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in. Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you devour widows' houses, and for a pretense make long prayers. Therefore you will receive greater condemnation.Matthew 23:13-14

Brush up your Shakespeare...

Virtue of the Week


lamb-like characteristic

Flexibility is being open to change. You consider others' ideas and feelings and don't insist on your own way. Flexibility enables you to be creative and discover new ways to get things done. You easily drop things that become a hindrance and adopt new ones. Flexibility helps you to keep changing for the better.

Behold, I tell you a mystery; we will not all sleep, but we will all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.1 Corinthians 15:51-52
