It’s only those who carry crosses who can know how there is a weight of the many complex things that bear down on people. Jesus said,
“Let me give you a new command: Love one another. In the same way I loved you, you love one another. This is how everyone will recognize that you are my disciples—when they see the love you have for each other.” John 13:34-35 MSG
They’ll know you are My disciples if you don’t label the
the misunderstood people,
the people with a different ethnicity, skin colour, culture,
the depressed and struggling people,
the narcissistic people,
the mentally ill people, sick people, confused people, angry people, hurting people …
— but if you love them.
A kind of miracle happens when we don’t label people but simply and purely love them.
And love is ultimately not a flighty good feeling, but a steady quiet, prayerful current that could carry the loved person toward ultimate good.
Love is stubbornly praying for your ‘enemies’ till you see ‘enemies’ are illusions & God makes everyone grace in your life. A chosen one. A purpose. A lesson. A grace.
If we knew what current everyone was trying to battle, there isn’t even one person we wouldn’t help fight their current with the steady prayer of Greater Love.
See with Christ eyes.
