Love one another

Photo by cottonbro studio on

You know that guy or gal at church you really just can’t stand. You know, the one you strive to avoid eye contact with so as to not have to have a conversation with them when you’re the only two people in the area… yeah…

Jesus loves them. He died for them.

Whatever he/she did that rubs you the wrong way. Let it go. Love your brother/sister well. This means in spite of their faults. In spite of slights or offenses. In spite of not understanding why they are they way they are.

Understand that they’re just a work in progress. The Lord’s not done with them yet. And maybe, just maybe, the Lord made them exactly the way they are because he has a purpose for what he’s sown in them.

The very thing you find so distasteful in your brother or sister’s style, opinions or personality is the very thing the Lord loves about them. The way he made them. So love them, as best you can, as he loves them.

“8Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. 9Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. 10As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace: 11whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.”

– 1 Peter 4

About R Kyle McDaniel

Hey there! My name is Kyle McDaniel, I’m 39 years old and I live in Fort Worth, TX with my wife Kitty and our two kids, Henry 3 and Catherine 1. Both Kitty and I are “from” North Texas but have moved around here and there throughout our lives but this area has always felt like it was home for us. 1/7/2021: I figured it was time for an update. The four of us became the five of us this year as we welcomed our third child to our family, our precious baby girl Vivienne Coers McDaniel. Vivivenne means “alive” and Coers was my wife Kitty’s maiden name and it’s French meaning “heart/s” and it’s our faith the Lord will one day give her a new and living heart to fulfill the meaning of her name. Kitty and I met in December of 2010 and were married on July 28th, 2012. We had both come to know the Lord and be born again before meeting each other and have seen our relationship with Him grow and mature through the years of our marriage as we’ve learned to love each other as He has loved us. We are just a regular family I guess, just people who really need Jesus and love him very much. If you feel lead to reach out, please do so, we’d love to hear from you or anything you think the Holy Spirit would have you share with us. God Bless, Kyle
