Your weekly love note from God.
Jude 1:22-23 And have mercy on some who are wavering; save others by snatching them out of the fire; and have mercy on still others with fear, hating even the tunic defiled by their bodies.
Extend compassion, provide paths to liberation, protect those at risk of falling prey to temptation. And yet I do not ask you to let your body or soul be harmed by those of my children who function out of malice or cruelty. While I seek the salvation of all of my children, I do not sacrifice one for another. If someone’s actions harm you or others, you can tell them, and you can love and forgive them from a distance. In a healthy community, you can find others to work with them on their redemption and potentially their containment so they do not harm others. Today reflect on whether there are people in your life doing you real psychic, physical or emotional harm. Seek help in creating healthy distance from them, placing your trust in me to save them in this life or the next.
