Tall, short, wide, skinny, any color, belief, opinion, or condition is loved by God. All are shown His mercy and so should we. As I listened to this sermon I tried to draw as many kinds of people as time allowed. Do you see yourself here? Pastor Greg taught us that EVERYBODY matters to God.
Sometimes I am saddened by what I see on Facebook. The battle of opinions do not always sound like love. How can we soften the rhetoric and show mercy to those that we disagree with? Can we show love and acts of merciful words toward Obama, Bush, abortion, undocumented aliens, police, races, sexual orientation, guns, budgets, public schools and home schooling parents? Sure. it's okay to have an opinion, but when have we stopped listening to the other side, discussing, and debating, instead of name calling and over the top hateful words?
And that is my sermon for the week. :-)
