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.

Temptation

0EBFBD5C-7829-40A5-8604-7A7D04AEE48F“If we are tempted by such trials, we must not say, “This temptation comes from God.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, and he himself tempts no one.”
‭‭James‬ ‭1:13‬ ‭GNT‬‬

Temptation is the desire to engage in short-term urges for pleasure that may threaten long-term goals. In some religions, temptation is the inclination to sin. This desire may result from coaxing someone into committing such an act, by manipulation.
Everyday I am tempted by something and often I succumb to the urge and often it leaves me feeling empty and sad. To me, this is life’s greatest struggle. Intellectually I know the right answer, but sometimes my spirit becomes self centered and forgets to stay aligned with The Spirit.
