Have Faith

Despite the dreadful happenings in the world…Love is still winning.

Psalm 69:21

Insult has broken my heart, and I am weak; I looked for compassion, but there was none, for comforters, but found none.

I can truly empathize with the psalmist’s words when I look over the atrocities going on in the world. There is so much cruelty and heartless behavior.

Jesus experienced the worst of it.

He became the one spurned…the outcast, the scapegoat…so that we could see just how wrong and ugly it is. He knows what it’s like to be completely rejected and unjustly persecuted.

So you know that Jesus can empathize with us and comfort us when we experience being persecuted and rejected.

Jesus became the most thoroughly rejected one…so that he could show us exactly what unconditional love is by forgiving his persecutors even when they didn’t ask for forgiveness.

Jesus became the outcast so that he could show us once and for all that Love wins.

Death leads to life.

God is Love.

Acts of love are overwhelming the acts of hate all over the world each day.

May the comfort of this awareness rest in your heart…and may you share it with others.
