My delay in posting comes with yet another confession.
My confession is this: my heart hurts.
My heart hurts for each person dealing with their own confusion and sense of security in light of the events of the past week and a half in America…
So…the advice I was given was this…
” Go to the Scriptures.”
And that’s what I did!
I know this is cliché, but seriously, JESUS IS THE ANSWER!
“Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” “(Matt. 22:36-40 NIV)
There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. (Galatians 3:28 NIV)
Words like Jewish and non-Jewish, religious and irreligious, insider and outsider, uncivilized and uncouth, slave and free, mean nothing. From now on everyone is defined by Christ, everyone is included in Christ. (Colossians 3:11 MSG)
And I pray that I may have eyes to see everyone through the eyes of Christ and not through the opinions of others.
