I’m at the Pride Festival today – my first one! – which is a beautiful day to show my support and to walk in the Parade tonight. Today is a great opportunity to pour love freely to people who have often been hurt, betrayed, abandoned.
I’m thinking of a friend, someone who understands how much Jesus loves her, someone Jesus has carried through horrific times, someone who knows what it means to forgive unthinkable offenses. I wish she were with me to pour out that love like sunshine to the LGBTQ, the way she’s always poured it out to me.
But she is not with me; she doesn’t “approve” of gays – as if our approval is part of the equation for sharing His freely given love. So, now it is my goal to share enough for both of us. I am so thankful that God’s love is indeed more than enough.
As Jesus told us, “Above all else, love one another as I have loved you.”
I hope you receive God’s freely given love and I hope your day is full of joy and pride.
