Love every WHO...

"The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these." -- Mark 12:31

"But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you," -- Mark 5:4

WHO are you commenting about on Facebook-
complaining about they way they live?
WHO are you angrily yelling about,
refusing to forgive?

WHO are you developing opinions about,
from only what you see on a screen?
WHO are you learning to hate,
from only what can be seen?

WHO are you protecting yourself from
when you carry that gun in your purse?
WHO do you openly fear?
WHO do you openly curse?

Look at that those that make up your WHO,
the ones your actions show that you hate.
Look at WHO you complain about,
the WHO your comments berate.

These human beings that make up your WHO,
the ones you treat with disgust,
Are the neighbors Jesus talks about
when he says that love is a must.

Are you taking the side of the cop,
and hating the WHO he shot?
Do you know about the WHO that died
when tempers were hot?

Or, do you talk with loathing
about the WHO in dressed in blue?
 "Black lives matter," and you want revenge,
But his life matters too.

Your WHO may be a politician,
your opinions you love to share.
There is venom in your speech, 
but you don't seem to care.

You are certain your opinion is right,
everyone else is dead wrong!
If people would just agree with you,
this country would be strong!

Instead of speaking with hate
though the computer keys,
we should follow the lead of Jesus
and fall to our knees.

Stop spewing your hatred
all over Facebook and Twitter.
Stop gossiping and complaining.
Stop being so bitter.

Our great country give us freedom,
freedom to say what we want.
But that freedom of speech
doesn't mean we should hate and taunt.

Love and care for your neighbor,
as you would care for you.
Pray for your enemies,
and love EVERY WHO.

Dear Loving Father,
I thank you for this beautiful world, but I pray that you change hearts all over that world! There is so much hate, so much fear, so much needless and senseless destruction and death...It is sometimes painful to live in this beautiful world you gave us. Lord, please help people to learn to LOVE their neighbors and treat EVERYONE with care! I am sure your heart breaks at the hate you see in this world. I pray that you will break the hearts of those who carry so much hate, and open those hearts instead! I can't change the world, but I can live my life in LOVE! Please give me the wisdom, strength and HOPE I need to continuing to loving every WHO that I come in contact with! In Jesus' precious name, Amen.
