God showed me a quick thing today:
Okay, so imagine you were meeting someone amazingly famous, like umm Obama or George Bush? Or just anyone that you’d give high repect for. How would you treat anything they own? Meaning, they’re clothing, house, wife, etc. You’d treat them with great care and caution, right?
Well, in the same way, God is the highly repected king. God owns every single person on this earth. Therefore, we should love them and care for every single person in this world as we’d treat ourself. The greatest command after loving the lord with all our heart, mind, and soul, is loving our neighbor. (Matthew 37-38)
There are always going to be the people who talk nonsense about you, they’re just nonstop sinners in our eyes. But then again, who are we to judge? Christ doesn’t want to judge, he wants us to LOVE. Because…
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” -Romans 5:8
That is one of my favorite verses. JESUS died for OUR sins, while WE were SINNERS! And you know what? If Christ can DIE for us sinners, why can’t we just show love to the haters out there? Even though there are always going to be people who will be against you, the only answer is to love them.
“We love because he first loved us.” -1 John 4:19
I love this one SO MUCH TOO. It’s because of GOD’S LOVE that we even have the chance to experience love to share. When we experience God’s love, we’ll have to urge to share it with others, even others who look down upon us.
And what is love? 1 Corinthians 13. Written beautifully.
So now, basically what God showed me today: Love your haters, don’t let them put you down. Just show them love, and don’t give them another reason to hate you, show them Jesus.
And in the end, once again – Everything will happen according to God’s plan.
(((: oh my, I love God.
