Love That Doesn’t Judge   3 comments

Beloved let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.

If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar, for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?

(The Bible, NKJV, I John 4: 7, 8, 20)

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

(The Bible, NKJV, – Galatians 3: 28)

Love with a Heart of Tenderness   Leave a comment

Love with a heart of tenderness

Your enemies and friends;

However hard this may appear,

This quality just mends.

For Love is God in action true,

A presence that is felt;

A healing and a saving power

That will all discord melt.

(Christian Science Hymnal 519)
