Someone wise once said; “it is not so much of what happens in our lives that affects us, but how we understand what happens in our lives that affects us.” It is the interpretation that matters. Sometimes it is how we respond than what happens that makes the difference. In other circles they talk of freeze, fight or flight. In ours, “do everything in love.” In our day, it is not food, but music, its genres, theology, environmental views, climate changes perspective and others. How do we manage? Let everything we do be underlined by love.
Love builds community, cares for the other and is selfless. Love seeks to consider the next individual and their plight. How do we respond to people who take things differently from us? Do we condemn or do love them?
