So, the Supreme Court of the United States has legalized ‘gay marriage’.
Do I agree with homosexuality? No I don’t. Doesn’t mean I don’t love people who are gay… I do. But then, I don’t look at people through a gay/straight lens in life. Do they treat me with kindness, as I would treat them? That’s what matters to me. Can I trust them and do they have integrity? Do they have a sense of humor? That matters to me too. All people are our brethren. Would I help them if they needed it? yes I would, just as I would anyone else, and without hesitation. But just because we ‘can’ do something, doesn’t mean we should… and just because it’s ‘legal’, doesn’t make it right.
My friends, I used to get completely up in arms about all this stuff about all the insanity and about all the injustice and all the evil and all the immorality in this country, and in the world for that matter! But you know what? I don’t get that way anymore. As it says in Matthew 7:3, I’m not going to worry about the speck of sawdust in someone else’s eye… and not see the log in my own. My mind and my eyes and my heart are focused on Jesus. On my own personal relationship with Jesus. And trying to do what is right in the way of loving the Lord God with all my heart and all my soul and all my mind, and loving my neighbor as myself. That’s the key to life right there. All this other stuff happens for a reason, and the more I read the Bible, the more I see so clearly that God Himself is in control of it all. Whether that means the devil is doing it and God is allowing it, that is still a matter of God’s sovereign control. Things do happen for a reason. And one day, as we already know, good wins in the end. God wins. Remember, Jesus did not come to bring peace, but a sword…. and He will be using it. He’s using it right now, people just don’t see it. And those who don’t are simply not meant to.
