Genuine Christian love and being judgmental does NOT look the same! Be cautious that what you are calling ‘standing for righteousness’ is not just your way of bypassing your primary responsibility to love other people just like you love yourself. Ask yourself how you’d want to be treated if the shoe were on the other foot. Real talk. If they are wrong, tell ’em in love, but KEEP LOVING THEM. Love is our job. Unless they are OUR children, discipline is not.
Christians are to be recognized by our love. When people describe you, are the ways you love and handle people some of the things you get complimented on the most? If not, why?
Mark 12:29-31 – Jesus answered him, “The first of all the commandments is: ‘Hear, O Israel, the LORD our God, the LORD is one. And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. This is the first commandment. And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these.
