I heard a great quote that I want to take further. He quote was from a guy on YouTube who said this:
“Just because we have different viewpoints doesn’t mean we have to hate each other.”
And I want to tell you the key to executing that mindset, because it is a necessary one for any group of people living in the same family, country, workplace, earth. Here is the secret key: Ready? Wait for it…
Care more about God then yourself and other people as much as yourself.
It is that simple. Really? Yep. It is the heart of the matter, pun intended. If we simply follow these 10 commandments, reduced down to two, with a humility and the fruits of the Spirit, the world would be flipped upside down, or actually would be made right.
A difference of opinion would not induce hatred but maybe a conversation or acceptance of a different viewpoint.
Families would be stronger, as each would love God first and foremost and want to please Him and then would love each other as much as themselves so nothing would be done for self that harms another but instead each would support and encourage each other.
Words and actions would be done from love and not from hate or its counterparts greed or envy or folly or self-interest etc. Love views things quite differently, sacrificially even.
Ah, just thinking of God’s original design is wonderful. We can help by adopting such a world and heart view and implementing it. And if enough of us do this, wow!😄❤
Today we shared our day with loving family, our Great Aunts Evelyne and Ellen down in Sebring, Fl. Yes, it is a bit of a drive, but always worth our monthly visits. We usually help them with odd jobs or big jobs they are no longer able to do themselves, but just visiting with someone who loves you and is family lifts and encourages and energizes me greatly. I love family. Family comes in various flavors too. I have dear friends I consider family. I have my band family. I have my church family. I have my blood family of course. But these people are valuable to me and time with them is my lifeblood. Having a family is having love. And if the family you are.born with is not as they should be, in life and in Christ, we adopt family!! Woo hoo!😄❤
We are given everything we need by a living Father God, salvation through Jesus Christ and thr indwelling power of the Holy Spirit, alongside the written Word of God, the Bible as our guide. So here is your love encouragement truth for the day… humbly ask God and talk to Him for life and whatever you need and He will provide what you really need. God has this for you. How loving and beautiful is that?!😄❤
On the topic of “giving up”,
Don’t do it. Ever. Never give up.
On why not to give up,…
Because you are loved by God and never out of His reach. You are held tight as soon as you choose to be.
You are loved. Always. Forever.
So, to recap,…
Never give up. You are loved dearly by God. Reach to Him. Always. Forever.❤

Jesus loved us unconditionally and sacrificially. This is how He said to love each other. If we did this, we would change the world in no time flat.❤
