What do you see?
After just a few minutes of being at the splash pad, both my girls made quick friends with several kids. It seems that age and race aren’t an issue. So, where did it start being an issue? Will I be able to influence my girls so they continue to see no difference or will the world’s influence get them?
Can they continue to just love the love that John speaks of?
John 13:34-35 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
There are many more scriptures that speak of how we should love each other. As we age, we loose the innocence, we are influenced by the world, it’s impossible to stop. Heck! I influence my girls, that’s just how it goes. But regardless of age, race, gender or religion (or lack there of), that group of new friends, that group of old friends, our neighbors are still just imperfect people, trying to find their way in this world just like me, just like my girls. So can we put influences aside and just love.
Lord protect my girls. Protect all my grands. Protect this world from ugliness. Amen!
