We have the propensity to love one another in the way we love ourselves. A family member of mine, well, let me start by asking a question. How often do you see trash-filled yards, grass overgrown, or weeds taking over a landscape? This seems to be a common theme in some communities lacking hope and faith.
Now back to my family member, who lived in a place where housing was subsidized, so people paid according to their income. Many of the residents had hope of a better life, and dignity seems fleeting at best. My relative saw a different view. He grew grass, flowers and kept everything trimmed up nicely. Soon after, something amazing happened, his neighbors became interested in doing the same, taking pride in thier environment.
Not long afterwords, they organized a community garden, never needing anything by the local government, but driven by a dose of optimism. They felt empowered by this action. Something else interesting started to happen in subsidized housing. Their change of attitude changed their outlook on the environment, and as a result, it prepared them for future blessings. They were living out the Lord’s command, to love your neighbor as thyself.
They felt some sense of empowerment and less reliant on government intervention. Not long after, many of them, including my relative, moved into their own homes, empowered by their early actions.
When we shift the environment of our thinking, some amazing things can happen, even to what we call our global environment. In God, we only have the propensity for greatness. Our inheritance In Christ Dissintangles us from dreams of yesterday. Adam didn’t awaken but we are by God’s grace given that opportunity.🙏🏾🎉
Today, some people are obsessed with linguistics, with a hope to create a separate society and shut out noncompliant, independent thinkers. Without knowing it, they have become disagreeable with the language of love and varying opinions. The eleventh commandment is clear and straightforward for most who follow Christ, but impossible for them driven by wrong motives and can’t remember their make-believe language during times of hate. I would say to them, and myself, turn to Him, the Father of all, and rediscover the language of Love that heals all seeming division. 🙏🏾☀️
