Some how, in our culture, loving well or even loving at all seems to be one of our greatest challenges. We love those who are like us, those who have the same interests, who are attractive, or who we decide aren't "those people" the people we have deemed less acceptable to society. Sadly, I have realized and seen this bitterness in my own heart. It is so easy to be judgmental, to look at someone and instantly have mean words on your mind toward them. I recently saw something that said "Before you assume, learn. Before you judge, understand why. Before you hurt someone, feel. Before you speak, think." About a month ago I decided that I was going to make it my goal to not speak badly of anyone. While I know I will fail at this, as it is so easy to get caught up in gossip and meanness, I constantly am reminding myself of this promise of love that I have made. I caught myself becoming ugly with words and now I am teaching myself to speak love, and love always. How wonderful would it be if more people took on the "Love Always" challenge?
