“There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.” (1 John 4:18)
The world we live in is so messed up.. We celebrate athletes and public figures for breaking laws. Whether it’s drugs, domestic violence, or DUI it doesn’t matter because it will be justified. It seems the bigger the crime the more they’re celebrated. We saw a President impeached in the early 70’s for erasing six minutes off some recorded tapes but yet Hillary Clinton is allowed to get away with destroying her hard drive that possibly contained emails that would implicate her and other political figures in the death of four U.S. citizens. We ban Pete Rose from baseball for life for gambling but yet we slap the wrist of players whom were caught using performance enhancing drugs. In the late 80’s SMU was given the “death penalty” for breaking NCAA regulation but yet now very little is done to programs that have done much worse. Al Capone was sent to prison for owing $150k in back taxes but yet Rev Al Sharpton owes millions and has carte blanche to the White House. Does integrity no longer matter in this world? Do we just not care? Truth, Justice & the American Way seems to have changed its meaning. I grew up when heroes were referred to as the men that raised the American Flag at Iowa Jima. Courageous was when Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat. We have lost our way. We no longer embrace God and His ways. We have distanced ourselves as far as we possible can from Him.. When will enough be enough? Or will it ever be enough.. I’m ashamed of the America that we live in today..
“Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first.” (Revelation 2:4)
Seek to live in God’s love which covers all sin. Wear His Love like a cloak of Light that covers you from head to toe. Do not fear because His Perfect Love decimates all fear. Look at other people through lenses of Love and see them from His perspective. This is how you walk in the Light which pleases Him. God wants His Body of believers to be radiant with the Light of His Presence. He grieves when pockets of darkness dim His Love Light so return to Him because He is your First Love! Gaze at Him in His Splendor of Holiness and His Love will always envelop you in Light..
“Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.” (1 Peter 4:8)
MY CHALLENGE PRAYER for YOU.. Wear God’s cloak of Light that covers you from head to toe..
I hope you all have a MAGNIFICENT day… Blessings & much love….D
