It’s so easy to be a bully; to be full of anger and hate; to be intolerant and unforgiving; to blame others for (fill in the blank). But if we are followers of Christ, we ‘should’ be practicing what He preached:
…love one another as I have loved you.~John 15:12
…when you refused to help the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were refusing to help me.~Matthew 25:45
If you love only those who love you, what reward is there for that? Even corrupt tax collectors do that much.~Matthew 5:46
With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God’s likeness.~James 3:9
Instead, if your enemies are hungry, feed them. If they are thirsty, give them something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals of shame on their heads.~Romans 12:20
Lord, help me to humble myself before You and put your teachings into practice. Amen.
