If we truly want to reach other people, then we need to promote what we love instead of bashing what we hate. The moment that we step into self-righteousness and start judging others, then we lose any chance of reaching them. As long as we are judging the sins of others then we can’t love them. When we decide to love them right where they are in their lives, then we can pray for them. And our prayers will reach them.
We should be kind, loving, and compassionate to ALL people. Not just the ones who live according to our beliefs. Until we have walked a mile in their shoes, then we can’t understand why they do the things that they do. Regardless, God commanded us to love our neighbors. If we want to turn our country around, then we need to love others as God loves us.
God doesn’t want us to fight about what is right and wrong. When I talk about God, it is because He is so great in my life that I want others to know Him as well. I want others to experience the greatness of my Lord and to feel His amazing love.
Matthew 22:37-40 (KJV)
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
Today, as we celebrate Valentine’s Day, let’s show others the love of God and focus on His amazing love. The Bible tells us that love can cover a multitude of sins. We need to remember that the battle is God’s, not ours. He is in control. Anytime we can show others love, instead of hate, anger or judgment then we gain victory.
