Be More Loving?
The sermon today was about getting along with people. Being more loving. Putting other's needs ahead of your own. Basically, the whole concept of Christ and therefore Christianity. This is such a struggle for me. A constant struggle. How pathetic. I struggle most with the very basic tenet of Christianity. The battle is raging just as fiercely within as without.
One of my good friends leaned over as we were both having a difficult time today and said, "The sermon was tailor made for me today." "Oh really, you too?" Now I fully realize everyone struggles with this. Even people who don't appear to.
Today has been much worse than usual in the "trying" department. There have been so many people, circumstances, and issues that have made me want to be anything but loving. In fact, I am quite certain Christ isn't showing in me at all today. I much prefer the sermons that I hear and think of someone else...you know, so and so really needs to hear that.
