Luke 6:35 But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.
Brother’ and sisters, do not show fear or refrain from being who you are. As your kindness and authenticity make you shine above the rest. Being well mannered and articulate in love surpasses all things superficial and worldly. It is the very thing that makes your headstand out above the rest, even when you’re short.
It is by the show of unfailing love for all people that make the Lord’s heart sing. It is the very thing that insights newness and growth in others. Being a spokesman for God’s love permits others to lay down their guard. Frequently people pretend to be who they are because they are hurting inside. They may have endured something along the way that led them to create this fake persona. One that protects them from being damaged. Somewhere down the line, someone may have torn them down for that very same thing. This is how the devil works, but thanks to the goodness and glory of the name of Jesus, we, the Lord’s people, are going to flip the script.
In saying all of this, I know all too well of what I speak of. But by the grace and mercy of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, “I AM FREE,” to be me, and I love it, and so will you!
Here are a few facts about love. Love is universal as it joins and does not separate. It heals and does not break. It fills and does not empty. Everything in creation was founded on love, and we can not deny God’s perfect plan. However, to ease your heart with truth, let’s take a peek at what the Lord says.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its way; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. As for prophesies, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.
There it is! Our free pass to love. So today, let’s get out there and pour out that agape love. Step out on the line to promote God’s goodness. We are doing so by giving a compliment, holding a door, telling a stranger how beautiful they look.
How about trying this one on for size… say, “God Bless You.” I get a kick out of this one. Because I tell every single person I come across, “God Bless You,” and sometimes, their reactions are priceless.
So, if their eyes bug out, or they say, “ok,” it is, OK. Dust off your feet and move on to the next victim. I have to admit; I am laughing right now because as God is my witness, it is true. Because, unfortunately, many people in the world do no know the love of God.
It will take beautiful people like “you” to pour out the oil of joy and gladness. To loosen up those “squeaky” wheels, if you will. They will come around, eventually. So be generous with your kind words, and never feel ashamed to act out in god’s goodness. The only one who hates love is the devil’s drones, and honestly, do we care what they think!
I say this as a statement, not a question. But the answer to the question, if you perceive it that way, is NO!
The Lord has a goal these last days; he desires that all people see each other as he sees us.
“With A Love That Sees No Difference.”
Now, if the squirrel in the image above can get it right, so can we. I like to think that the human race is more intelligent than a rat with a fluffy tail.
Listen, America, there are twenty-four hours in a day, sixty minutes in an hour, and thirty-six thousands seconds within that hour. So what is your excuse not to love?
The truth is— you have all the time in the world.
1 Corinthians 13:13
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is LOVE.
God Bless you, and I love “YOU.”
