Full of Hot Air

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: Have you heard it said that someone is “full of hot air”? That’s a pretty good picture of a word Paul uses in 1 Corinthians. He says, “Love is not arrogant” (13:4). One translation says, “Love isn’t puffed up.”

When we love, we don’t have an inflated view of ourselves. I think of a bellows used to fan a fire in the fireplace. You push those bellows, and the air comes out and makes the fire bigger. That’s what arrogance is like.

We can start thinking about our own accomplishments or the honors we deserve, and it fans the flames of sin. No one wants to be around someone who’s full of hot air.

The solution is to be filled with God’s love. Then what comes out will be genuine interest and concern for other people.

Would you ask God for that kind of genuine love?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
