TODAY THE WORDS are STAND YOUR LOVE, and may we move ourselves away from people who want to anger us, want to make waves for their own agenda, and cause separation of all of God’s children. May we grow closer to understanding because someone says they are standing up for someone; they sometimes are standing against others.
God has given us wisdom to recognize people with good intentions and wisdom not to follow those who would use tragedies to build their name. America needs a reminder we need to continue forward in our country by recognizing the good things we have accomplished and not allow hatred, anger, any division to tear all of the hard work that true builders of America have fought for, sacrificed for, and believed in for the good of all mankind, not one race, not one culture and not one religion. I see many good leaders trying to speak against forming opinions because some people who are not interested in peaceful talks or for the betterment of relations between all races, cultures, and religions; they are only interested in being in the spotlight. If we listen with our minds and not what others think; what makes sense? I don’t think anyone wants to see any young person die; I grieve as you do for all young people who die young and we have many of our youth being taken out by senseless acts and some of those acts are by their own hand or by other young people who have been deceived by Satan and Satan’s helpers. To me, every drug dealer has committed murder by enabling a young person to get drugs and to get into a state of mind, they want more and more and sometimes overdose. Is that not tragedy too?
When our young people are exposed to so much violence, so much immoral acts, and so much disrespect, it enables young people to go against the good teachings of Mothers, Fathers, and Grandparents.
Now for the deeper thought…I think back in my life and many people of many races and cultures have been good friends, good supporters, and good influences for me. I have learned and listened and cared and I know they cared for me too. What is wrong with this kind of thinking? Nothing, and when we treat people right; most of the time they respond in a good way. When we find people who are serving themselves for their own gain or profit; walk away if they cannot listen to reason. Today, Stand your Love instead of Stand your Ground and allow God to work in their lives; but do not hate the person; hate the sin. May God bless this country and give strength to all who believe in the rights of all.
DAILY FEATURED BIBLE VERSE:
1 John 4:19-21
We love because he first loved us. If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. And this commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother.
