Well, the 2016 Summer Olympics are over. All of the great competition from elite athletes from all around the world has come to an end for four more years. Sure, there will be world championships and other competitions, but it just isn't the same as the Olympics.
But I'm in luck! Because this week I get to invite you to participate in the Love Olympics.
Ok, there isn't such a thing. But because of this week's verse from Romans 12, I get to invite you to make love a competition.
Hopefully you remember that we are walking through Romans 12 here on the blog, discovering what a follower of Jesus looks like. This week we are going to look at verse 10, and it tells us to turn love into a competition.
Well, okay, it doesn't say that verbatim. Here is what it actually says...
Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.
In other words, Paul is saying to make love a competition by seeking to outdo one another in showing honor and love and brotherly affection. Think about that!
It would be amazing!
But in order for the games to begin, someone has to go first. So why not you? Why not be the one to kick off the Love Olympics in your home or at your work place? Become an elite Jesus-centered lover, who loves like Jesus loved, seeking to win gold at the Love Olympics, by putting others first.
