Regardless of Religion, Can't You Believe in Love

I'm a person who professes my Christian loyalty.  My faith, opinion, or idea on that won't waver.  I will gladly talk to you if you're ever interested in having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.  But, I digress...

I'm not here to go into why I believe what I believe.  But I will go in to the topic of love, which is what Christianity and most religions are centered around.

We're in a world that's becoming more fraught with evil and hate.  For whatever ungodly reason, some people are quick to flip a switch and express anger and ire.  I'm not saying human compassion and goodness doesn't exist.  What I am saying is that we are in a world where violence is rampant.

I voted for Trump and not for Clinton.  You're mad at me.
I have a differing opinion on worldviews.  You're mad at me.
I took too long at the checkout.  You're mad at me.
I didn't answer your text fast enough.  You're mad at me.
I work for the government.  You're mad at me.
I rely on the government for food and cash assistance.  You're mad at me.
I don't believe in the government.  You're mad at me.
You get the gist.  Or, are you mad at me?!
Express the love and innocence of a child.

I get it.  Some people have had crappy lives.  They've been used and abused.  They've had absentee parents.  They've had a friend who left them in time of need.  Whatever the situation is, it's up to you on where you want to focus that energy.  Do you want your insides so filled up with rage, or do you want to make a difference in this world and in your life?

Regardless of your social status, religion, race, or other whatever, it's up to YOU to decide where you want your energy to be spent.  Whether it's love or hate, one of them has to fill up the space in your heart and mind.  You may as well go for the emotion that's going to make a positive change.  And that there is my 2 cents for the day.

Well said. Doesn't matter what you say or do, there will always be someone who can find a way to be mad at you in any situation. As for me, I choose to live and let live.
