Thought of the day (3)
3. Thought of the day: Jesus never talked to a prostitute or a woman at a well. He never went to a tax collectors house. He never loved His enemies. He did, however, talk to His daughter's that were in need. He went to his sons house. And He loves all of his daughters and sons regardless of the way in they feel about Him. How comforting is it to know that God doesn't look at what we've done, how we feel, or in the way others view us, but He views us as His children created with a purpose? Beautiful sons and daughters all in our own ways.
Then shouldn't we have the same mentality with everyone around US? I can tell you now.... I have stopped looking at someone as homeless, a certain race, or a guy or a girl. When I look around, I choose to look through Jesus's eyes and see in each person a wonderful and special creation. It is our calling as a Christians to help all our brothers AND SISTERS in need regardless of gender, social status, enemy or friend.
This is my prayer for you today, that you might see others not through Satan's lies, but through Jesus's eyes. That you will see a child of God, created in His image, in need, and not a homeless guy or a widowed woman or any other distraction or stereotype the world throws at us. I pray that you can humble yourselves so that you are able to clean the feet of those who have no shoes, dress those without clothes, and love everyone enough to provide for their needs. Finally, I pray that you will see that God made enough for our needs in this world, but not enough for our greed.
“But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. To one who strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also, and from one who takes away your cloak do not withhold your tunic either. Give to everyone who begs from you, and from one who takes away your goods do not demand them back. And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.
“If you love those who love you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who do good to you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. And if you lend to those from whom you expect to receive, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, to get back the same amount. But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return, and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, for he is kind to the ungrateful and the evil.
