Let all that you do

I still had the questions from yesterday living in my head as I  picked up my Bible study this morning.  In our Friday Bible study group, we are completing an inductive study on 1 Corinthians.

The last chapters of Paul's letters are always so full of good stuff.  It's as if he knows he only has a small window of time left to speak to them, so he rattles off these bullet points of things he wants them to remember and practice.  (Sometimes they are just practical - like asking for his coat.)

I shared last week that I sensed God calling me to focus on love this year.  It should not have shocked me to read these words this morning as I went to God for wisdom

 God, my prayer is that this year I could practice this verse.  Pursue this living of a life of love.  Run after this idea that ALL I do can and should be done in love.
Study because of love.
Teach because of love.
Serve because of love.
Do laundry because of love.
Blog because of love.

One of the questions in the study (written by Kay Arthur) was "What is your foremost passion, your governing ambition?  How do you show it in your daily walk?"

Yesterday I confessed that affirmation from others was a driving force in my life.  Today I am challenged by the Spirit of God to make love the passion of my life.  In all that I do.

How would you answer that question?
