Hi all! How are you all doing? I’m great, thanks for asking. I have some major plans for Tinted Lens for the rest of 2010. :]
14The entire law is summed up in a single command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
– Galatians 5:14
A lot of the time, I feel Christianity is overcomplicated. Some people insist that, as a Christian, you must do these things daily, these things every season, this every year, and so on. However, many forget one of the most important things about being a Christian; in fact, second only to loving God with all your heart. Love your neighbour as yourself.
I can’t emphasise this enough; you may have noticed many of my Bible Studies have focused on love; that is because love is so important. Without love, we are not in the likeness of God, however by displaying love, we are showing people – believers and non-believers alike – how much God can love them and thus bring them closer to a relationship with God. Love can heal wounds and can heal pain; we can start the healing process in people, and God will come in and do the rest for us.
And don’t just love the people who are nice to you. Love the unloved; the criminals, the elderly, the disabled. Love the people who need love the most. Love everyone.
