Love all

Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them (Romans 12.9; NLT).

Do not judge others, and you will not be judged (Matthew 7:1; NLT).

***********************

Love all
Exactly as,
And where,
They are,

Striving
To hear,
Accept,
And understand.

Then
You will not
Be quick
To criticise,

Nor will you
Judge them,
Punish,
Or condemn.

No limit

“Lord, how many times shall I forgive someone who sins against me? Seven times?” “No, not seven times,” Jesus replied, “but seventy times seven!” (Matthew 18:21-2; NLT).

Love your enemies (Matthew 5:44; NIV).

********************************

Lord,

How many times
Should I forgive
All those who hurt me?

Not seven times,
Nor seventy-seven times;
Not even seventy times seven!

For there’s no limit
To forgiveness,
Or to love.

Lord,

You taught me to forgive
All those who hurt me,
Even when they don’t apologise.

Then you showed me
How to pray for them,
And love them,
For they do not understand
The harm they’ve done.

Now, you want me
To turn the other cheek,
Rather than rebuking
Those who hurt me;

And this step
Is the hardest of them all, Lord –
Just as it was for you,
Upon the cross.

Experience peace;

And share in love –

We know we’re in the presence
Of our God.
