Dear Sisters, We Oughta Love

…It is one thing to love someone on the basis of what they do/do not do for us & to us and it’s another thing to love the very being of someone. You see, loving the very being of someone means separating actions from the individual that they are and loving them regardless of condition/circumstance. This is how God loves us and how God commandeth us to love others ( 1 Corinthians 13:4, 1 John 4:7-12). If we can not separate the two, the action of loving someone and learning to love others can and will be very difficult, if not unattainable because that is not the love God says we are to have for one another. 1 John 4:10:11 says “In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.” God does not love us on the basis that we gave him something to love about us ( and oh how we love those who love us/do rightly by us which is driven on the basis of action), he loves the very being that each and everyone one of are. Many of us can not love because the way that we think we ought to love is not the way God intended for us to love.  Loving someone does not mean accepting what they do, if one is in the wrong, it just means that you love them pass/regardless of what they do. One can say that it is impossible to love everyone/our neighbor/our enemy and it is…apart from God.

With love,
