1 Corinthians 16:13-14
13 Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong. 14 Do everything in love.
Paul seems to be equating that what we do in love is pleasing to God. That being said, love makes us vulnerable. We are to be on our guard not because we are to keep from being too vulnerable but so we do not get discouraged when others abuse our vulnerability.
How vulnerable do you make yourself because of loving?
Christ Jesus, you have shown us the example of the most vulnerable love of all. You submitted yourself to the death of humanity only to be resurrected. Love conquers all. Amen.
