Rich and poor have this in common:
The Lord is the Maker of them all.
Rich or poor.
Fat or thin.
Gay or straight.
Criminal or Free.
Democratic or Republican.
Homeless or home-free
American or … not
Beautiful or … ‘not’ – in any perceived way, shape or form – the Lord, God Almighty, Savior and King
is the maker of us all.
It would appear we humans have in common what matters most: GOD!
we should be wise and use our words and actions to bring LIFE to every walking, breathing image of God – of which we are only one.
if we struggle in doing that, then it is best to just. shut. up… and do our talking to GOD instead.
we must love because God IS love … radical, outlandish, to the ends of the earth lavishing love
Because bottom line:
It is the love of God that brings a man to repentance.
It is Love which covers a multitude of sins.
It is LOVE that laid down His life for the very ones that held the nails: … you, me, “them.”
And we are wise if we remember that.
Let my life, and my words, and my attitudes, be signboards of your love, Jesus.
