I seek to emulate Jesus Christ in the way He loved. The pure love of Christ is called Charity. We read about this love in the Bible, 1 Corinthians, Chapter 13. In the next few days, watch for posts about this vital attribuite of Christ. When we seek to emulate Him by loving as he loved, we change hearts, are happier, and each of us can be a more positive INfluence on others.
Charity suffereth long, and is kind. –1 Corinthians 13: 4
TODAY’s ChangeMakers can be very kindhearted. It is important, however, to be sure there are no misunderstandings about this attribute.
In Oct 1991, Aileen Clyde stated it this way, “It is not charity or kindness to endure any type of abuse or unrighteousness that may be inflicted on us by others. God’s commandment that as we love him, we must respect ourselves, suggests we must not accept disrespect from others. It is not charity to let another repeatedly deny our divine nature and agency. It is not charity to bow down in despair and helplessness. That kind of suffering should be ended, and that is very difficult to do alone. …We must be willing to let others help us.”
TODAY’s Affirmation: I am TODAY’s ChangeMaker*. Although I may have suffered a lot of things, I am kind to myself as well as to others.
