December 26, 2022

It is a great day when you learn to refer back to biblical teachings to handle life issues. As a conservative, God loving, right wing patriot, you will encounter those who believe differently from you. Though we may not agree with their thoughts, we can still love them with our whole heart even if they don’t love us back. Earlier this year, I had a friend that I feel betrayed me. It wasn’t anything major, but it still hurt. She and her husband didn’t have our same belief system, but we were okay with that; we didn’t have to talk about politics or our beliefs to still be friends. However, they couldn’t get beyond it because, their opinion was that the gap was too wide, and though we tried to build a bridge, all they did was tear it down. When it comes down to it, love is the bridge, but you will find that there are people who don’t understand real love; love them anyway. One day, and it may be in eternity, they will see the truth, but it will be too late for them, but you will have pleased God by your actions. Keep handling issues the way God recommends and everything will go well with you. 

For this is a gracious thing, when, mindful of God, one endures sorrows while suffering unjustly. For what credit is it if, when you sin and are beaten for it, you endure? But if when you do good and suffer for it you endure, this is a gracious thing in the sight of God. 1 Peter 2:19-20
