Do you love me? Then take care of my sheep.” (John‬ ‭21‬:‭16‬ NLT)

Today, I read an online article about one more high-profile Christian that has gone public in support of a lifestyle that God does not endorse. In the article, they make mention of how the Bible doesn’t clearly address the issue (it does) and that love is more important than morals (it isn’t). After all, isn’t how we feel about others greater than how God feels about the issue?

I do agree that for many, “Love Thy Neighbor” tends to go only as far as “But Only If They Believe Like I Do”. However it’s not a matter of Love as much as obedience. Jesus said that if we love Him, then we’ll take care of His people. But giving people what we want to believe instead of His beliefs is wrong, especially since they’re not our sheep, but God’s.

Be careful how you live, what you endorse, or what you teach others. God desires for our Christ Life journey to help others find the path and live it successfully. But if we behave out of line or teach others to, even in the name of Love, we stand to offend Someone more important than the “politically correct”. Be right or be popular, but you probably won’t be both! You are loved today! Choose wisely!
