Love is the only force capable of turning an enemy, into a friend!
Something I struggle with every single day, is to not have hatred in my heart towards people who hate me. The cancel culture we live in, loves to hate us because we want morals and principles in society. We are hated because our faith doesn’t fit in with the world’s agenda. So, how are we supposed to respond?
Should we remain quiet and let the world continue on a course of self-destruction? Of course not! We must speak up and act against injustices. We must challenge the world and make it known that there is a better way. But the only way it will have any impact, is to challenge them in love. That’s what Jesus would do!
Someone once said, “Share the Gospel, and if you must, use words. The Gospel is all about repentance, forgiveness, love and grace. It’s about allowing the Holy Spirit to work in our lives so that we are filled with more love, and emptied of hate. It’s more our example that will change the world, than empty words.
Father God, today, help me to stand up for what is right, but do it in love. Amen
Have an awesome day!
