Loving Unconditionally

It’s easy to love people that are just like us.

Unconditional love says, I’m going to love you even if I don’t agree with you.

Don’t have a holier than thou attitude. Take off the judgmental glasses.

When we show this unconditional love, people may not respond right away. We are sowing seeds of love.

It may look like it’s not doing any good. We don’t have to straighten everybody out. All we have to do is sow the seed.

The church has been good at telling people what we don’t like. John 13:35, By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.

What would this world be like if instead of judging people we started loving people?

They may come from a different culture, denomination or faith. Sometimes we have this narrow view of God. When we get to heaven we will be surprised who all is there.

When you love unconditionally, you have a wide circle. You are not judging everyone to see if they fit in your little box.

A lot of times religion is trying to push people away. Do you have a heart to believe God? Do you believe in the resurrected Savior?

The mercy of God is wide.

Why do we try to make it so narrow? You don’t have to tell people what they’re doing wrong.

They already know that. Just love them. Where would we be without the mercy of God? When we made mistakes? When we didn’t deserve it?

There’s usually a good reason people are the way they are. Before you judge them, get to know them. God freely gave us mercy. Let’s give other people mercy.

One way to know how pure your heart is, is to look at how much you judge.

Too often we judge what we don’t understand. John 7:24, Stop judging by mere appearances, but instead judge correctly. Give everybody room to become who God created them to be.

Don’t judge by the exterior. You don’t have to understand someone to love them. You don’t have to agree with them to love them.

Start covering people with love. It’s easy to cover them with condemnation and guilt. Remember, they are on a journey. Show mercy.

Be understanding. Give them the benefit of the doubt. You’ll have more joy, better relationships. Your own life will improve.
