There are all kinds of things that can impress us: stupid animal tricks, brilliant mental feats, amazing generosity, world’s strongest iguana and oh so much more! I just looked on youtube for the latest & greatest (something about an elevator prank in Brazil is popular today), but I was less than impressed.
In 1 Corinthians 13, Paul challenges us to not be impressed with amazing spiritual feats & miracles, nor should we be impressed with persuasive conversations or speeches. He’s not even impressed with excessive philanthropic activities. What Paul challenges us to be impressed with is genuine love. Let’s be mindful about what really catches our attention and grabs our admiration 🙂
