Today: Love indiscriminately

If love discriminates, it is not God’s love.

Luke 4:25-30
“Certainly there were many needy widows in Israel in Elijah’s time, when the heavens were closed for three and a half years, and a severe famine devastated the land. Yet Elijah was not sent to any of them. He was sent instead to a foreigner—a widow of Zarephath in the land of Sidon.

And many in Israel had leprosy in the time of the prophet Elisha, but the only one healed was Naaman, a Syrian.”

When they heard this, the people in the synagogue were furious. Jumping up, they mobbed him and forced him to the edge of the hill on which the town was built. They intended to push him over the cliff, but he passed right through the crowd and went on his way.

Do some soul searching: Is there anyone you refuse to love? Fill their name in the blank below and pray for them. Let God heal your heart.

    Wow….this was a tough one. Really made me look at myself. Forgiveness and loving someone who trampled on your heart is a tough one however, God’s love shines through it all. Thanks Maury.

      Definitely easy to do in theory. But when your heart still hurts, it’s HARD.
