This morning I read an article about a woman who, for months, had a pain in her neck. During this time, she prayed and prayed about it. One day over lunch with a friend, the conversation turned to someone this woman strongly disliked. During this conversation she was reminded that our true being is spiritual, perfect and harmonious. Her constant feeling of dislike about this person had become habitual without her even recognizing it. Soon after praying to see this person as God sees her, there was a resolution and the relationship was healed. Shortly after, the pain was gone in her neck because there was absolutely no tension when she thought about the other person.
As I was pondering this, I was reminded about a political figure who I didn’t like and was always listening to garbage about this person. Since I didn’t know this person personally, I didn’t see the harm until I realized that I was disobeying God. I John 3 :7 states “Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.” That means everyone! We can not pick and choose who we see as the child of God.
