Until Perfect Has Come by Kirk Hunt
For we know in part and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.
1 Corinthians 13:9-10 NKJV

God’s men and women labor every day. They work to do the best they can with what they have and know. Later, when perfect knowledge and resources are available, they do better than ever. That is why love must always motivate our actions.
I may not always understand completely. The best resources for the task may not be at hand. But if I am acting out of love, then the results will tend toward blessing and benefit.
A peanut butter sandwich, served with care and concern, is a banquet of nourishment. A couch and blanket, in a place of love and safety, is a resort of rest and restoration. Do the best you can at the time, but do with love every time.
Even God’s people do not have complete revelation or knowledge in every situation. Still, the lost or hungry or hurting need an answer, here and now. An answer, given from our hearts through God’s love, will serve in the moment.
Always work to improve your knowledge and gather the right resources. The right item at the right time is a blessing. A man or woman of skills and knowledge can often work wonders. Regardless of everything else, the best results always come from operating in God’s love.
Think: Love should always be my motivation, even after perfection comes.
Pray: “Lord, help me to always act in love.”
