What’s love got to do with it? Paul’s heart is wide open to the Corinthians, and he’s inviting them to widen their hearts as well. This, he does, as if speaking to children, urging them not to receive the grace of God in vain. Paul’s concern for the Corinthians is like that of a parent for a child–genuine and unending–and it mirrors God’s approach to his people as a father who draws near to welcome them and walk among them. God’s love motivated Paul’s love, and in writing to the Corinthians, his hope seems to be that we would open our hearts to receive that same love from God. As beloved children of God, our hearts ought to be wide open to loving others as well. Is yours?
