Loving People

At times, it can be difficult to know how to effectively love someone. A situation came up late last night that challenged/reminded me of this and I was again brought back to the question of how to love someone effectively yet not condone there actions! Sometimes loving them means a good rebuke, at other times it means just being there for them in a difficult time. Sometimes I have trouble knowing when to do which. In the past I have been accused of being judgmental, and in some instances I was. At other times, however, a kick in the pants was needed and I have no regrets. Wisdom is needed in either case I suppose. To love as He loved is the goal. I pray for wisdom to know how to do this effectively.

Me Too! I guess this goes back to that conversation we had about being culturally relevant vs the pursuit of holiness! Right now I'm trying to pursue biblical wisdom and let that be my guide on how to handle THOSE kinds of situations. Gonna miss you when you go back to school.
