Rain

‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭11:14‬ ‭ESV‬‬

As we await our flight to Costa Rica, the weather is deteriorating from sunshine to rain. Despite my best intentions, I tend to worry about the possibilities—delays, turbulence, etc. I have been waiting for this special vacation all year, and I despise disappointment. Realizing I must accept whatever happens, I find comfort in knowing that rain is a blessing—without it, we could not survive. Trusting in God defines my Faith so whatever He brings, I will accept.

True Love

6AE67444-FCCD-4240-BD1A-572867602493Jesus answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the greatest and the most important commandment. The second most important commandment is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as you love yourself.’ The whole Law of Moses and the teachings of the prophets depend on these two commandments.””
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭22:37-40‬ ‭GNT‬‬

True Love

Our Divine calling is to love, but love the sinner, not the sin. Our society calls us to accept the sin, as an act of love; but, that is not the real definition of love. When we truly love someone, we want what is best for them, and that is never sinful behavior. At the risk of being called judgmental, I ask you to ponder the question at hand. Personally, I am so tired of our media attacking people with certain views and yet asking for tolerance.
