I was listening to KLove during lunch today and Amanda Caroll was talking about a new blog she found by Glennon - Momastery.
In her "About Me" section Glennon talks about her struggles in life and how life is Brutiful...Brutal and Beautiful. She wraps it up with the following:
When it comes to God and faith and religion, I have some hunches…but I only know two things to be true-1. I am God’s beloved child.2. So is everyone else.
That really got me thinking....
I, me, Jennifer, am God's, the Creator's, the Almighty's, beloved child. I am confident I knew this fact already. So the kicker of all this is - And so is everyone else. Now THAT had me thinking.
So that means:
- that person who cut you off this morning in traffic;
- that personwho cheats on you;
- that person who got the promotion at work;
- that person who made a better grade;
- that homeless person;
- that drug addict;
- that down-right-rude person next to you in line...
are ALL God's beloved children. ALL of them!! And you/I/we are commanded to love them!
Well that hit me square between the eyes!
We are all God's children. No one is any better or any worse than me. I am a child of God and I will love my neighbor (no matter what!)
