WFW- Love when despised...


Love

 I am called to love my neighbor but I am not commanded to have to agree with them. -me

God has really shown me in my heart that I am to love no matter what.  Recently, I have been persecuted, threatened, hated on... all for being me.  But it is okay and well in my heart.  I will make sure that all I do will be in love.  Jesus says to give him your burdens and take on His yoke.  I give it all to Him and I will love like He loves.

 We are called to love. Perfect example, my BFF and I disagree on this subject but I respect her opinions because that is how she feels. Who am I to say she is wrong even though that is not my same feelings on the subject. Nothing will separate the love I have for her and she feels the same way about me .
"Our culture has accepted two huge LIES: The first is that if you disagree with some one's lifestyle, you must fear them or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you agree with everything they believe or do. Both are Nonsense. you don't have to compromise your convictions to be compassionate." by Rick Warren

  1. Super post, Sandy. I'm sorry you were persecuted for your beliefs and while it isn't "okay" you have rested in God's love for you ~ and that does matter.
    Blessings on you my Sister in Christ, may your heart always be at peace and a light to others,

  2. Yep, we can agree to disagree and leave it at that. :)

    It's a good post, and I am truly sorry about how things went down on FB when you posted that(definitely uncalled for, YKWIM).

    Love ya!

  3. I agree with you that we need to love others...not necessarily agree with or approve of all that they do. Just like with our children.

    Blessings to you,
