Don’t judge people by the cover (8/30/2021)

Yesterday I posted a Sunday Sermon about not giving up, “Hold On”. I want to pick up on the part that I said “pray to God and ask him to help you, to send people to you that will love and support you. And they will come, accept those people.” I want to emphasize on this part. People that you think would love and embrace you don’t always look like you think they may look. Your tribe that God sends don’t necessarily look like the Beaver Clever mom, they are not always a “Christian” that is in church every Sunday. They are not always a family member or a person of your race, religion or same sex. The very ones I thought would embrace me and love me, were not the ones. The ones that have picked me up out of my gutter of despair and loved me so hard, are not even church members. They are people from all different walks of life. They are people of color, they are part of the LBGT community, they’re the opposite sex, some have different political views, they have different religious beliefs, but one thing they all have in common is love, compassion and empathy. That’s the real religion right there. If you don’t have those things in your heart, I don’t care if you have your name on the church pew. You’re not doing it right! Having the mindset that your tribe, your people are going to be like you, needs to be canceled out of your head. God can use ANYBODY! Be open to all you meet because connections are not coincidental. ❤️
