God-Love lives from an abundance mindset, not scarcity. If someone else is blessed, it doesn’t mean there is less for me.
Much of our culture operates from a scarcity mindset. This mindset sees life as one giant piece of pie. If someone else gets a big piece of pie, that means you either get a smaller piece of pie or fight hard so you get a big piece, too. This is the “look out for #1” attitude. But God operates out of abundance. See, we are all fighting for a piece of the pie and we don’t realize that there are countless other pies that are available! God’s blessings know no end. This is key to understand when we look at a passage like 1 Corinthians 13. A scarcity mindset doesn’t understand God Love. When Paul tells us not to push others down in order to get ahead, it flies in the face of scarcity. The Christian life and followers of Jesus live from the abundance of God’s blessings. When we truly understand that, we will be able to be slow to anger and not push others down. We will be closer to living out God-Love in our own lives!

Consistency trumps intensity. When it comes to working out, eating healthy, or managing our finances, consistency always trumps intensity. We reach our major life goals through small, purposeful steps taken daily. The same is true in our spiritual lives. I truly believe you will grow closer to God by spending just 5 minutes a day with Him versus cramming in an hour once a month. The One Verse Devotional is here to help take away the barriers of spending time with God. Now, during your workout, drive to work, or even shopping for groceries, you can invest in your spiritual life.
