Love is patient, kind, not jealous, does not behave indecently, supports.
What a beautiful family photo full of smiles, soulmate love, parental glee.
Would decent people find this love offensive? Vile? Hate worthy? Tainted? Disgusting? Deplorable? Worthy of damnation? Discreditable? Indecent?
What if the father offended some for comments he made defending his wife from what he considered hateful and insulting defamation? Would he then become a scumbag?
What if he shattered a fairy-tale gone bad dynasty with a reality check? Should he suffer in hell for all eternity? Or divorce his wife and abandon his children to keep the bloodline (pure)?
What if the father had a spat with his brother, would that condemn him to a life of unrelenting verbal assault? Venomous threats? Hostile anger? Scorn?
Especially from people who don’t know him, will never meet him, and whose influence in their lives is nonexistent? Should they treat him as the world’s worst villain because of what they read in gossip tabloids?
And what if he wrote a book telling HIS side of the story?
Oh, Lord help us all!
But, but, but, he made money from selling his book. Umm… And that’s the world’s greatest sin?…
Isn’t the world’s greatest sin HATE. And JEALOUSY. SPITE. ENVIOUSINESS. INTOLERANCE. MALICIOUSNESS. ENMITY. EVILNESS. BITTERNESS. RESENTMENT. SPITEFULNESS.
What I find most jarring is that malicious comments come from those professing Christianity. We’re Christians; we follow Christ…
Do true Christians treat others in hurtful ways? Would Jesus treat this father like that — negative name-calling?… Haters betray Christianity.
But what if the father erred and revealed dirty laundry?
Ever hear of forgiveness? Isn’t that a cornerstone of Christianity?
What excuse could I conjure up to justify showing hatred to anyone — much less to someone I don’t even know?
Careful about the Words you use.
Negative words can cause trauma. Verbal abuse can have real-life effects on daily life. Beating someone with negativity is ABUSE. We all know that.
However, what does negativity do to the ones spewing it?
Now, this is where internal ugliness brews.
Resentment toward others causes mental, emotional, and health problems. While it makes haters feel good for the moment, it inflames more damage to themselves. Even suicidal behavior. Headaches. Stress. Anger.
Is the hostility worth it?
Love identifies what’s in a person’s heart. Love looks for the good. Love does not become provoked because of hearsay. Love is support. Love is caring. Notice 87 ways to show love.
