#LivingSugarFree for Christians

Many church folks focus on legalism because it’s easier than focusing on love. God is more concerned with your hate than he is with your hem line. If we obey every single commandment except love, we have failed.

Think about it. The hard thing is dealing with humans. How are you obeying God’s command to love???

If life is 20% what happens and 80% how we respond to it… well retaliation, pay back, revenge, or otherwise reacting to being wronged is what really holds you back. Let it go! And by let it go I don’t mean pretend it didn’t bother you and ignore the culprit. On the inside you are seething. I mean let it go by seeing the good in the situation as an opportunity for you and/or your offenders to learn and grow.

Deuteronomy 30:16 NIV

For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess.

If I offend you, bless your heart ’cause I don’t care. If you offend me I’m going to love you anyway, ’cause I don’t care. I seek God’s approval not man’s.

  1. “God is more concerned with your hate than he is with your hem line”

    That was good! I liked it. You made me laugh. I think there was something said in the garden about how, “I did not give you a spirit of shame.” Some of us seem to think we have this spirit of shame we’re supposed to pass out to others.

    • Thanks so glad you enjoyed it and always happy to make you laugh 😉 I hope you come again and tell a friend. There’s more where that came from. ~A

  2. People need to know that forgiving mean not holding on the anger, not opening up yourself to let the event repeat. Use the discernment that you were blessed with.

    • I agree Clifford. Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to share your comments. ~A

      • No problem. This is actually something that we recently discussed. It took a lot of reflecting to finally understand the distinction between letting go of the anger and not exposing oneself to the same occurence.

        Once bitten twice shy and all. That phrase made more sense too.

      • Very true. There’s a fine line between being smart and getting even. One is a principal the other is an action. It takes no effort to avoid the second sting, however making a big to-do about the stinger may land you in the very same predicament.
