“You say, ‘It’s too hard to serve the Lord,’ and you turn up your noses at my commands,” says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. (‭‭Mal‬ ‭1:13‬)

“How?” We say.
“I ask you to love and serve each other – to think better of each other than you do of yourselves.”
We say.
“But what?”
“But you don’t know how horrible, angry, smelly, and downright nasty some of these people can be…!”

“Just who – are ‘these people?’”
“You know, Lord… they’re the ones who have made themselves lost to us. We’ve rejected them and their ways and imprisoned them for our own safety. They’re sick…!”

“When you harden your hearts against these hurting ones, it is YOU who become horrible, angry, smelly and nasty to ME!”

“Love one another – as I have loved you …“ ❤️
