Following God One Step at a Time

It’s so easy

on August 14, 2017

It’s so easy to fall in love…  Remember that song?  It implies that falling in love is easy, but keeping love alive is hard.  It takes time. It takes effort.

It’s the same way with hating people who are different from us.  

It is easy to point fingers, make nasty comments, and yell hateful words.  It is harder to take the time to get to know people, to give them a chance to explain what their life is like, and what their hopes and dreams are.  It takes time to form a friendship.  

Hate can happen in a moment on the street, or in a Twitter post.

We pray in the Lord’s Prayer — “thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven”. —We are asking for God’s will to be done on earth.  

Hell does not belong on earth.  Send hate back where it belongs!

The Lord’s Prayer asks God to bring heaven to earth and deliver us from evil.

Pray the Lord’s Prayer out loud today —

Our Father who are in Heaven, hallowed be your name.  Your Kingdom come,  Your Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who have trespassed against us.  Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.  

–>Listen HERE to the Lord’s Prayer sung beautifully by Yolanda Adams.
