There are so many ways I could talk about love.  Today, I choose to discuss how I believe as a Christian God intended me to love His people.  I'll discuss why He chose me to love the way He did, why He chose you for me to love, and the benefit of me loving you the way He told me to.

God chose me to love you because just like Him, He knew I would look pass your faults and see your need.  There should never be a time where we, as Christians, should focus on the faults of our sisters and brothers.  Doing so would be a misrepresentation of Him and cause shame for the reason Christ died on Calvary.  Your faults are none of my business.  That is Jesus' business to handle.

God chose you for me to love because loving you shows how valuable you are to Him.  Know your worth.  He created you in His image.  When you look in the mirror, you are looking at a piece of Him.  No matter how flawed, He loves you anyway.  He loved you so much, He sent Christ to take care of your faults.  When Christ ascended back to heaven, He sent people like me to love you with the same measure.  Don't worry about those who don't, God gave you just who you need in your life.

The benefit of me loving you the way He told me to is, He is sterilizing you to love others with the same measure.  We should always choose love when it comes to others; faults and all.  To do the opposite, would be a disservice not only to Him, but also to ourselves. 

Love one another.  As I have loved you, so must you love one another.  - John 13:34 

Much love,


  1. The truth, well spoken! It is so easy to see the faults of others. When we start to focus on the unconditional love that Christ has for us it is much easier to love others. It is something we have to remind our self of daily, b/c that old flesh will try to take you where you do not want to go. Thanking God everyday for loving me and helping me to love others in the same matter.

    1. It is easier to see the faults of others Margaret because we tend to focus on that more than what the actual need is.
      Faults are usually signs of need(s) not being filled. I believe if we would just take the energy we put into focusing on the faults and place it on the need(s), we will enable our brothers and sisters to have better success in their lives.

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
