Thought For Today: “Doctrinally Correct but Devotionally Wrong”

As we study 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.

“We know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffs up, but love edifies.” (1 Corinthians 8:1)

Paul says that knowledge puffs a person up with pride, while love edifies.

He explains this in 1 Corinthians 13. Here Paul uses loud 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, we’re actually nothing more than clanging cymbals, making a lot of noise but saying nothing.
