Loving Like Jesus

Posted on February 13, 2012 at 12:07 AM

Christian Books for GirlsI've been thinking a lot lately about bullies and snobs. The truth of the matter is...I was once a snob and I didn't even know it. Sure I was nice to everyone, but that didn't mean I saw them the way Jesus sees them. Moving away from my home town has given me a broader perspective. I used to joke about "Walmart people" etc.

Working in the fashion industry for seven years only made my snob attitude worse. But, over the last few years, God has totally changed my heart. Now, I see all people as valuable to Jesus, and it is my job to treat them as the treasures that they are to Him. I am so ashamed that I once cared more about what other people thought of me than I did about truly loving others. So many people out there are hurting. So many kids are lonely and in need of a true friend. As Christians, it is our duty to look past their outward appearance, and love them just like Jesus did. It's one thing to be "kind" to someone but still think you are better than them. It is totally another thing to consider them an equal.

James 2:1-4 says, "My dear brothers and sisters, how can you claim to have faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ if you favor some people over others? If you give special attention and a good seat to the rich person, but you say to the poor one, 'You can stand over there, or else sit on the floor'—well, doesn't this discrimination show that your judgments are guided by evil motives"

There is no place for a Christian to ever make fun of someone else because of their shabby clothes, their weight, their unfashionable hair, or their financial status etc. True love looks past the outward appearance, and only Jesus offers this kind of true love. Let's love like Jesus.

That is my prayer to, that Jesus gets all of the glory. It's exciting that I can share the lessons God has taught me with the next generation of girls.
