Isn’t it great when you find that perfect man/woman who does everything just right? They love you, provide for you, doesn’t get angry, let’s you have your way all the time, buys you just because gifts, flowers and chocolates. I’m on the floor laughing because I don’t know anyone who is that perfect, do you? I’d probably get sick of them after about a week, lol. It seems like it would be easy to love that person right?
“If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them. (Luke-Acts 6:32 BOOKS)
How about that person that lies all the time, that steals from you, hurts you, makes you cry, won’t get off drugs, won’t stop beating you or cheating on you? It’s easy to be “done with them”cause love ain’t like that, if they loved me they would not do that, if that’s what love is, I’m good. Any of that sound familiar, it does to me. I’m struggling with that right now and it’s hurting me because I loved that person and did everything in my power to help them and I kept getting mistreated in the situation. I washed my hands of them, but God keeps reminding me of me? How I’ve not done right all the time, I’m not perfect, I’ve hurt people.
“Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. (Luke-Acts 6:37 BOOKS)
So I’m saying a prayer this morning, dear Father, give me a clean heart, renew the right spirit in me and let me be compassionate to the suffering of others. Lord if I turn away in my flesh, turn me back. I love you Lord, and I praise your Holy Name. in Jesus name, Amen.
