Not Deplorable....But Love God
For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you. Romans 12:3
A certain American politician recently called another American politicians' supporters 'deplorable' which was extremely bigoted, hateful, and uncalled for. Many Christians were lumped into that 'deplorable' category by this individual. Extremely sad and very hurtful. Because a person holds certain things in high regard and believes a certain way, they are not tolerated by the one who would scream 'deplorable'.
You who love the Lord are no where near deplorable. You are a child of the most High God. You may make mistakes yes but God forgives you if you ask. Those who ridicule you and don't understand you need prayer and need to be shown love. Hatred of others is not the answer but rather pity for those who are so mean for no apparent valid reason.
Whatever you do don't fight back at those who are ugly to you. As hard as it may be, try to pray for them. People did not understand Jesus and mocked Him and ultimately hung Him to die on a cross. Stand firm in your beliefs and pray for those who don't love the Lord or His people to come to a saving knowledge of Him.
PRAYER: In this political climate I find myself in here in America, help me as I seek stand for the truth no matter what. In Jesus' name. Amen.
