God's word is summed up in a single sentence, love others as you would love yourself!
As I meditate on that, this comes to mind;
When I come across mean and hateful people I ask myself why are they like that? Who hurt them? Then I remember that part of scripture (Galatians 5:14) and it becomes very clear.
They can't possibly love anyone because they don't love themselves! You can't give what you never had!🤷🏾♀️
It, by no means, gives them a free pass but I recognize and understand where the behavior stems from.
Love is not only patient and kind, it is also free, won't cost you nothing! You can give it freely and it will surely return back to you!
If you're someone struggling with anger issues, or abuse of any kind, you may find this a difficult thing to embrace. I would love to encourage you! Forgiveness is key. First for yourself and then for others! It's really hard to navigate through this life with pent up anger, robbing you of free LOVE, not to mention the physical effects It's having on your body, mind, and spirit!
Make the decision today to experience some of this FREE LOVE! Be loving and kind to YOURSELF. See how that feels, sit in it. The more you do that, the better you'll feel and the more capable you'll be of extending it to others.
I DARE YOU TO TRY IT!
