Love the unlovely.
Trust that love is more powerful than evil.
Walk out love, don't just talk about it.

Job 17-20: Compassion Not Accusation
In my own life, the pain I have endured has caused more compassion to rise up in me for others.
“Have pity on me! Have pity on me, O you my friends, for the hand of God has touched me!”
Poor Job begs for comfort from his friends and finds nothing but more accusation.
Lord, please don’t ever allow my heart to be so hardened that I am more worried about someone’s potential sin then for the emotional pain they are suffering. Comfort fist, then loving confrontation later in the name of Jesus, AMEN!
