Guys, just because the owner of one clothing company is being exclusive and almost hateful towards others does NOT give us the right to be mean or rude to him.
I’ve seen so many posts today mocking the owner of Abercrombie&Fitch. So many of you have been making fun of him and how he looks and you have been calling him names. (even if you didn’t say those words yourself, your likes and your reblogs and even your laughs MEAN YOU AGREE) And quite frankly, it’s really upsetting.
Just ask yourself this: are you really any better than you claim this man is?
God told us to respond in love. He told us to respond with kindness.
“Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” -Romans 12:21
“Do not repay anyone evil for evil.” -Romans 12:17
“Finally brothers ((and sisters)), whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable; if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things.” -Philippians 4:8
The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save.
He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.
How great You are for loving me no matter how many times I break Your heart.
Something that I think we all need to ask ourselves and consider as we go through our Christian lives, and run our partial or wholly Christian blogs, comes from the book of Galatians. Paul writes in chapter 1 verse 10: “Am I now trying to win the approval of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ.”
As you blog and lead a good Christian life, don’t do so for self ambition. Don’t be a good person just so that others will look at you and praise you. Instead, let your motives be that of love for others, love for Christ, and a sincere desire to draw closer to God and to praise his name!
“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” - Colossians 3:17
Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.
What is grace if it is earned or deserved?
It is but just a mere story of the most beautiful kind of love.
Grace is something that cannot be earned nor won. It can only be given as a gift. That is why love and forgiveness, given by grace, is the sweetest, most beautiful, yet very undeserved gift known in the whole universe.
Jesus is the sweetest, most beautiful, yet very undeserved gift to the whole universe.
