1 Corinthians 13:1-13 Divine love empowers us to respond calmly to difficulties, demonstrate patience in seasons of waiting, and sacrifice without complaint.

We offer God’s love when we can: Forgive others. The son wasted his money in riotous living and discovered both the empty promises and destructive quality of sin.

Upon the boy’s return, his father forgave him completely. Love made it possible to wipe away the past (Ps. 103:12). Act generously. The son, having just fed pigs, arrived at his father’s estate with few expectations.

The forgiving dad greeted him most warmly and dressed him in the finest garments. Godly love, which keeps no record of wrongs, enabled the father to show generosity.

Serve joyfully. What a celebration the father had upon the prodigal’s return! His joy in his lost son’s homecoming overflowed to others.

Love expresses itself in willing service. Restore those who fall. The one who both abandoned his father and squandered his inheritance was again given full rights as a son.

When we mess up, our heavenly Father patiently waits for us to turn back to Him. He accepts our repentance, rejoices in our return, and restores intimacy with Him.

The elder brother in this parable missed the point because of his self-righteous attitude (1 John 1:8). He didn’t recognize his mistakes or the many times his father had shown him love and forgiveness.

God calls us to a lifestyle of agape love. To whom could you extend the divine love that forgives, restores, and serves with generosity and joy?

Always different!

Day after day for years Harry shared with the Lord his concern for his son-in-law John who had turned away from God. But then Harry died. A few months later, John turned back to God. When his mother-in-law Marsha told him that Harry had been praying for him every day, John replied, ‘I waited too long.’ But Marsha joyfully shared: ‘The Lord is still answering the prayers Harry prayed during his earthly life.’ (Daily devotional)

Harry’s story is an encouragement to us who pray and wait. He continued ‘steadfastly in prayer’ and waited patiently (Rom. 12:12). The author of Psalm 130 experienced waiting in prayer. He said, ‘I wait for the Lord, my soul waits’ (v.5). He found hope in God because he knew that ‘with the Lord there is mercy, and with Him is abundant redemption’ (v.7). Author Samuel Enyia wrote about God’s timing: ‘God does not depend on our time. Our time is chronological and linear but God . . . is timeless. He will act at the fullness of His time. Our prayer . . . may not necessarily rush God into action, but . . . places us before Him in fellowship.’ (daily devotional)

What a privilege we have to fellowship with God in prayer and to wait for the answer in the fullness of His time. Psalm 130 is one of the pilgrim songs (Pss. 120–134) the people of Israel sang as they made their way to the temple to celebrate the three national festivals (Deut. 16:16). In this psalm, the writer was deeply distressed by his own sinfulness and earnestly cried out for God’s mercy (130:1-2). Yet, he was able to confidently affirm, ‘But there is forgiveness with You’ (v.4). Finding hope in God’s Word (v.5) and being assured that ‘with the Lord there is mercy, and with Him is abundant redemption’ (v.7), he patiently waited for God’s pardon and removal of his guilt (vv.6,8). In response, he invited the congregation to fear God (v.4) and to celebrate His unmerited and undeserved grace (v.8). (Daily devotional)
