It hurts my heart to witness a society divided spewing hate and injustice. It’s disappointing to see the Bible branded as a tool for hatred and intolerance.
I wish the world could see that God’s heart is LOVE. I wish the world would appreciate that we are all just people trying to find our way.
Rather than sowing hate and negativity, can’t we simply enjoy our family and friends and be grateful that we get to LIVE today? Do we need another tragedy to remind us to love one another? To appreciate and care for each other?
Love should be the motivation for all our interactions. Jesus—the embodiment of perfect love—encouraged us to “love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and, love your neighbor as yourself” (Luke 10:27).
I’d like to consider myself a friend to everyone who shares with me the time of day. No agenda. No judgment. No holier-than-thou attitude. So simple.
I leave you with this beautiful Bible passage on love:
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails (1 Corinthians 13:4-8).
Yes, love never fails. Love always wins. God is love. For God so loved the world…
