I still Love You…..

lovecompassionI still love you. You have hurt so many with your words and your actions……I still love you. Does it surprise you to know that I will always love you? A mother loves her child with an unconditional love that knows no limits….and I find that my love for others is similar to this love that, up until recently, I have only felt for my children or family.

But that unconditional love now extends out to others, it is not reserved only for my children or family, it goes out even to those who hurt me or my loved ones.

Yes, I still love you. And if you want to receive that love….it is here for you.  It is the one thing I can give freely, whether you want it or not.

I do not hate you. I’m filled with a love that knows no bounds……….

Mark 2: 16-17  “When the teachers of the law who were Pharisees saw him eating with the sinners and tax collectors, they asked his disciples: “Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?” On hearing this, Jesus said to them, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”

WWJD? Love with NO buts!

As Christians, we are called to show others (each other) love. Jesus told His disciples, “By this shall all [men] know that you are My disciples, if you love one another [if you keep on showing love among yourselves]” (John 13:35).
It’s pretty simple really. Love others. Is that what we do? Everyday? Do we love others?
I see and hear other Christians bad mouth each other, or get into such heated debates that they sound hate filled. If we can’t love other Christians how will we love all Gods children? I say live life by one rule (the same rule) for everyone. Love others regardless of…..
Love others without any “buts” Say “I love you” not ” I love you but……” love your fellow-man regardless of what they can or can not do for you, regardless of their socioeconomic status, regardless of how many tattoos they may have or who they choose to call “friend” “spouse” or whatever! Just love others the way Jesus did and the way He told us to.
I think too many people lose faith in religion / Christians because they see us not loving others. They see the judgement and the intolerance. If we can’t be trusted to do the simple things, like loving other Christians, how will we ever be trusted with the hard stuff? Like leading the way?
Love…that is the way.
