So I should love someone who misunderstands me? Criticizes me? Will not hear me? Puts me down? Belittles me? Hurts me? Abuses me? Crushes me, my family, those I am responsible to care for and love?
“For this is the original message we heard: We should love each other.”
1 John 3:11 MSG
Living and loving as Christ did goes against human nature to exact revenge against someone who does the things I first mentioned. I can only trust God to help me make it through this trial. How will He? When will He? Why won’t it happen? I must trust Him.
It looks like I may lose all on earth. Is this the plan? All lost on earth and gaining eternal life is better for me; but what about those I am responsible for on earth – sorting and dealing with this is the tough task. I can only trust God to help me handle it wisely.
It challenges human reason. Pushes me to the edge of everything. I can only wait and trust God.
