Super Glue

Super Glue

But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. Colossians 3:14

Recommended Reading – Colossians 3:12-17

Where can you find the strongest glue in the world? Not in a store or factory. Dive into the ocean instead and take a look at barnacles and mussels, which fasten themselves to boats, piers, and rocks. Many shellfish secrete a protein that allows them to firmly cling to any surface, even in salt water. Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology are currently studying shellfish in an attempt to develop a stronger kind of waterproof glue that can be used in ship repair and even with surgical incisions.1

For an even stronger kind of glue, dive into the Bible and study the subject of love. The apostle Paul said that nothing can separate us from God’s love and that God has shed abroad His love in our hearts (Romans 8:39; 5:5). According to Colossians 2:2, our hearts are “knit together in love.”

Although the Church is made up of people from all walks of life, our love of Christ must unite us. That means we must exercise patience, meet needs, and put the interests of others first. Love is the opposite of being shellfish… I mean selfish.

Love is extravagant in the time it is willing to give, in the strength it is willing to spend, and in the price it is willing to pay.
George Duncan, Scottish revivalist
