Today’s Thought: “Doctrinally Correct but Devotionally Wrong”
As we explore doctrinal truths it must be perfectly clear that whatever we learn can never take the place of love and grace. We must be careful not to be so doctrinally correct that we become devotionally wrong.
The Apostle Paul addresses this condition saying that knowledge puffs a person up with pride, while love edifies. (1 Corinthians 8:1)
Paul explains this in what some describe as the “Love Chapter.” In 1 Corinthians 13 Paul uses loud sounding instruments to make his point.
“Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.” (1 Corinthians 13:1)
Paul is saying that without love everything we do to promote the gospel will never prosper.
We can fill bookshelves with what’s wrong with the church, but if we fail to show God’s love, then we’re actually nothing more than clanging cymbals, that is, those who make a lot of noise but say nothing.
