And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.1 Cor 13:13.
It's been a while since I've blogged so here's something for you to chew on today.
Life will take you through twists and turns, highs and lows. Even in the midst of victory, there's struggle going on in our world. So much judgement and fear. Too much skepticism and doubt. So much to really live for but too little to die for. Die for a GOOD reason - die for Jesus!
"Nonsense is the name of the game and mud-slinging seems to be the language of exchange"
Nothing pleasant and helpful to say; just your everyday belittling and mindless verses. And how has that helped humanity??? Where is the love?
Let's get to the meat of the matter! What is the matter? What resolve can we conclude to reduce or solve the problem? WE are ALL humans and HUMAN lives matter!!!
There's enough mess going on to last us all several lifetimes. With so much junk out there, we mustn't forget to show love. Faith is good. Hope is good. But love is something you have to practice. It's the love that can heal - not the hurt and hindering practices that seems to feel so comfortable for some people.
It's love that covers (over) a multitude of sins. 1 Peter 4:8 Hate what is evil but love what is good.
There is a blessed hope for those who love God. There is a sacred hope for those who worship Him. There is an everlasting love for those who love Him. There is an expected end for those who trust Him. It is when we show (action word) love, then the world will KNOW that we truly are His followers. God IS love. How will "they" know us???...if we have love for one another.” John 13:35
...Love God, love your neighbor AS YOU LOVE yourselves. Mark 12:31
"If you connect to the hearts of others, then they will give you a helping hand"
Be blessed and live well,
