Disclaimer: Hello, I am the CBF Summer Intern for Holmeswood, Skyler Lessenden, and for this week I get the chance to write this blog. I am a little unsure of what to write about, but I will do my best and hopefully you all enjoy!
Over the last couple of months the world has been full of tragic events, and in these times it is hard to see how God is involved. In the midst of these tragedies we tend to get angry at God and ask, “How could he do this to so many innocent people?” It is difficult for anyone to try and answer that question; however, I do know one thing.
In Luke 10:27-35, Jesus taught us to love your neighbor as yourself, no matter the circumstance. Jesus defines your neighbor as everyone, the “good’ and the “bad”, they are a child of God who need to be shown love. We see the children of God working hand in hand to combat the pain of this world by sharing the love of God; for example, the hundreds of thousands of people who supported the city of Houston after Hurricane Harvey. We may not be able to be end all the tragedies of this modern era; however we all know that we can love a little more. A little love can go a very long way!
So my challenge for you this week is to…
1) Smile at a stranger
and 2) Go and do the same, Luke 10:37.
Remember that YOU are loved and have an amazing week! 🙂
