We have so much happening in our world today and everyone has an opinion. But what is the truth? The truth is that we are all God’s children. We are born colorblind. We are born to love. We are born accepting others for their hearts and not their earthly decisions. We see this in small children gathering on a playground. There’s someting to be said about the innocence of a child. Hate is learned. Judgement is learned. Discrimination is learned.
A true Christian has love in their heart. They understand that sin is sin regardless of what the sin is, but they still love others as Christ loved others. Once we accept Christ and admit He is our Saviour, we believe He died on the cross for our sins, and we confess this with our mouths, then the Holy Spririt is housed in our hearts. From that point on Christ is a part of EVERYTHING we say and EVERYTHING we do. We must stop and think about our actions. If we could visually see Jesus standing beside us at any given moment, would we act or react the same way?
As earthly children, we answer to our parents. As children of God, we will also answer to our Heavenly Father. The Bible is God’s word and it tells us to relenquish worry and problems to the Lord. It tells us to take everything to the Lord and to TRUST in Him. Sometimes that’s easier said than done. Most of us are “fixers” and want to take care of things ourselves. I’m no different. I have my opinions. I try to keep them to myself, but I get irritated just like everyone else does. Reading my Bible, writing, and music help me stay focused on what is important. In the grand scheme of things, are the trivial things we get upset about everyday really worth the trouble, are they important? Are all the opinions posted out there really relevant? Are they going to change anything? I think not.
Billy Graham summed it up in this simple quote: “The Holy Spririt’s job to convict. God’s job to judge, and my job to love.”
