I’m just going to say it…there are people in my world that are almost impossible to love. I try, I really do try, but sometimes I imagine myself punching them. It’s only a sin if you act on it right? Ok. I see the fallacy in my thinking, but I know I am not alone in this. I bet every one of you can think of someone who might benefit from a good upper cut. However, when I stop and think about how many people might just get in line to punch me, things begin to feel a little different. I’m sure I am on more lists then I think.
1 John 4:8 and 19 says, “God is love… We love because He first loved us.” Praise God that He loves us just because He is love. There is nothing we could do or not do to make Him love us any less. He is the ultimate source of love.
Pray with me today a prayer of “help me love those I want to punch. Help me see them as you do Lord.” Hopefully someone who wants to punch you will be praying the same thing!
