Motivational Thought of the Moment - Love the Greatest Motivator

Unconditional love is the most important of all motivational factors in life.  "Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.  Love never fails."  1 Corinthians 13:7, 8.  Love keeps you going when all else fails.  It overcomes intolerance, fear, poverty, ignorance, pride, fear, discouragement, adversity, indifference, persecution and even death.  Love truly conquers all.  "For the love of Christ constrains us."  2 Corinthians 5:14. Christ, Who is by far the greatest Motivator forever, gave the greatest love the world has ever known, and ever will know.  His love has been the inspiration and motivation for the greatest acts of self-sacrifice, altruism and beneficence of humanity toward humanity.  "Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."  "For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.  For scarcely for a righteous man will one die:  yet peradventure for a good man some will even dare to die.  But God commends his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."  John 15:13; Romans 5:6-8.

"For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."  John 3:16.  Pure love motivated God to give the greatest gift in the world.  He did not have to give his only Son.  But because of his immeasurable love for us, He did it.  God the Son came down and became human like us, and gave us his all, culminating in his shameful death on the cross for the sins of the whole world.  The nails in his hands and feet did not keep Him on the cross.  Love did.  When his closest earthly associates all forsook Him and fled, and Judas betrayed Him, love kept Him going to the cross.  When sinful men mocked Him and beat Him and crucified Him, love kept Him on the cross to die for their sins, yea, for all of our sins.  God's love is the ultimate motivational factor.
