We all know that there is a lot of hatred in the world. If we are Christians, we also know that we are supposed to love everyone, including our enemies. A quotation from Dr. Denison’s post today really got me to pondering. Here it is:
Fyodor Dostoevsky stated: “To love someone means to see him as God intended him.”
I’m pretty sure that is how God loves you and me, the way He intended us to be, not the way we are on a daily basis. So that opened my eyes to the possibility that I haven’t been showing God’s love to others. I say that I love, but do I really? I don’t have the answer to that yet, but I am considering it and what it means to truly love someone as God does.
It’s hard to conceive that I have been loving wrong all of these almost five decades since I became a Christian. I have loved, but with a human kind of, “I love you because I’m commanded to but I don’t really like you” attitude. How many of you all are doing the same thing? But to love as God intended for them to be is to see people in a whole new light, isn’t it? Mind-boggling and eye-opening! Have a blessed day and remember to love!
