  1. In Courage,

    There is a sign on a church down the road “sugar preaching leads to truth decay”. How very true. Truly loving someone takes hard work & courage. Courage to speak the truth even if it hurts. We need to speak love over everyone. Our country needs healing & love is the only thing that will work.

    Blessings 🙂

  2. Love is best thing Jesus did for us. By showing his love to us while we were sinners going to Calvary. Jesus showed his love when on this earth as well by loving people no one else wanted to know. Caring for those people and teaching us how to love them back. Being kind caring and loving to everyone no matter what color of skin they have. We the saved are to do the same. Let the love of Jesus show from our hearts to people no else would want to know. Go that extra mile if we can for someone who needs help. Pray and be the Church to the hurt World if we can. See people beyond their skin color like Jesus did. Let the Love of Jesus shine from our heart. Like the song that come to mind. “Shine Jesus Shine”
    Here are some of the words to it.
    Lord, the light of your love is shinning In the mist of the darkness, shinning Jesus, light of the world, shine upon us Set us free by the truth you now bring us Shine on me, shine on me
    Shine, Jesus, shine
    Fill this land with the Father’s glory
    Blaze, Spirit, blaze
    Set out hearts on fire
    Flow, river, flow,
    Flood the nations with grace and mercy Send forth your word
    Lord, and let there be light
    Lord,I come to your awesome presence From the Shadows into your radiance By the blood I may enter your brightness
    Search me, try me, consume me all my darkness
    Shine on me shine on me.
    You get it on YouTube the rest of the words. It is by Graham Kendrick. It a beautiful song. Worth listening too and the words reading.
    So true of God Love and letting his sons Jesus love shine all over the world. Plus us who are saved. Love you all incourage love Dawn Ferguson-Little xx

  3. Truth spoken in love can hurt. How do you discipline a child with love by not hurting them a bit? How do you tell your mate that what they are doing is bothering you without hurting them a bit. How do you help a back sliding friend without hurting them a bit? Truth can hurt, but it can also be a gift. And delay disaster or more future hurt. It can help someone change course. Draw you closer. Truth can hurt, but it can still be done with compassion, forgiveness, and grace.
