I read this quote recently..."When all else fails-just love them."
It was referring to moms getting frustrated with their children, but it struck a chord in me. It should apply to everyone in our lives, not just the kids.
As my brain usually does, it started linking all these other ideas onto that one statement:
When they say something snarky or inappropriate- just love them.
When they unwittingly hurt your feelings-just love them.
When they take advantage of you-just love them.
When they gossip-just love them.
Because really, all of us have done one of the above at sometime or another. I know I have. And when I do I am so glad to know that when all else fails...The Father loves me.
So my challenge today-when all else fails....just love them.
