These were the word of an experienced and a law man. Whom found many church’s including a church in Corinth. The hero of our story, who said ” So I will very gladly spend for you everything I have and expend myself as well. If I love you more, will you love me less?”
How much are we willing spending ourselves to others ? Willing to sacrifice our time and effort to rescue someone? Paul whom even was not among chosen 12 disciples of Christ presents his everything to the Church , to the believers , to those even may not know personally but he is willing to love them more. But asking them would you love me less ? Would you even dare after i ve done all things for you. It seems Paul bringing a new culture and injecting this to the body of Christ. That is willing to love more each other. Every single day.
He knows himself as a parent , parent of church. A verse before that He said ” after all, children should not save up for their parents but parents for their children” . He is mature enough now, he passed broken boats and healed many and founded many churches himself. We are here to invest to the new generations of believers. We need to save up for them. Me and you , whom been through many troubles and hardship and know what’s right and whats not. We can inject this to the body of Christ. We dont need to be a church leader to do that. We can do it in our circle of people. In our community , in our schools , in our workplace , you name it.
If I love them more, would they love me less? Where are we in our city? Can we Love someone ? Can we improve this life of ours by loving more ? I am sure we can , I am sure we are made for this ..
