Love more..Change less..

The title of this blog looks like some kind of hippie slogan from the 60s.

But I cling to it’s truth this morning.

Have you ever felt the glaring eyes of judgement from someone?

Have you heard words that have left you feeling like you weren’t good enough?

Have you been in conversations where you’ve heard someone get run down, and you wonder what they say about you when you’re not around?

Have you ever felt like you didn’t belong?

Have you ever felt like something you did in your past now defines you to the people you know?

How often are we the one’s quick to judge?

How often do I make assessments about someone before I know the whole story?

Do I freely give grace and second chances?

I cannot:

change people..

control people (although I try)..

make people behave in a way I think is appropriate.

I CAN:

be kind..

love MORE..

ask their perspective before forming my opinion..

show grace..

pray.

Romans 2:4 tells us that it is God’s kindness that leads us to repentance..

and 1 Corinthians 13:8 says that “love never fails.”

Love never fails.

Love never fails.

Love never fails.

Making someone feel guilty..fail.

Making someone feel less than you..fail.

Making someone feel different because they don’t believe what you believe..fail.

Love never fails.

Love never fails.

Love never fails.

I can show the love and kindness of God more..

and I can try and change people less..

Thank you, God for your kindness..and your love that never fails..help me to show that kindness to everyone I meet today..and be true to your word, that love will never fail.
