The greatest of these

It rained last night, and I had to look down at the sidewalk to avoid snails on my morning walk. Why is it that snails, with their shells, are less disgusting than slugs without? Nonsense, but true.

Read 1 Corinthians 13 on love this morning. I'm so convicted and challenged by this: "But now remain faith, hope, and love: these three. The greatest of these is love." I don't love, or if I do, not much and not well. I understand things like duty, responsibility, consideration, and restraint. I even cling to faith and hope, asking for more of these in my longing. But love? It's like a hot stovetop burner I've learned not to touch.

I have a long way to go, and I need to let myself be carried.
