So I use to be an addict! I’m sure that statement caught you off guard. You may be thinking – this is a surprise! Without hesitation I could raise my hand and say “Hi my name is Perry and I am an addict”. I’m pretty safe in saying we all could. People have a universal addiction to being “right”. We will argue… we will spend countless hours and resources… trying daily to prove that we are right, and others are wrong. I have encountered those that are so addicted to being right, that it becomes more important than loving. I know… I use to be one of those people. We have to find a better way to relate to one another. A better way to love one another. Pure love means I am willing to see you, to listen to you, with an open heart and an open mind. I am willing to walk in your shoes in order to understand the reason for your life… your ways. To be a Christ follower means we are to emulate his heart and his way. His way was never condemning but always loving. So the next time you feel the need to feed your ego… simply stop. Look at the other person with Jesus eyes and let yourself become teachable.
THEN SIMPLY LOVE!!
I Love You!
