Love Cures

Scripture reading

But now abide faith, hope, and love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

–1 Corinthians 13:13

Thought of the Day

One of the great pleasures that I have with my job is the opportunity to assist in the covenant of marriage with young adults I have known over the years. A couple of weeks ago, I had the privilege of being a part of the ceremony between Erin and Alex. Erin had grown up in our church and youth program. She was marrying a nice young man, named Alex who just happened to be the great grandson of Dr. Karl Menninger, co-founder of The Menninger Clinic. Dr. Meeniger became known as the “dean of American psychiatry” because of his pioneering work in the field. He was an outstanding speaker and prolific writer. Erin and Alex had a great quote from Dr. Menninger printed on their wedding program. Here it is.

“Love cures people – both the ones who give it and the ones who receive it.”

Do you need some healing? Do you need to help heal someone around you? I think you know the prescription.


Lord, Help me to love and to be loved. Amen.
