Do we really want to stay and listen to what they have to say...I know for myself---sometimes I do...but I sometimes I have erred when I ask this question as I do not have time to stop and listen.

Always learning....I should think more before asking this question..and I should Really love when I am going to say it. I know many people really do feel they love everyone...and when they say it, they said it for real...but, sad to say...some do not mean it. I wish I were more like the ones who truely do find love in everyone....and can say it openly.
Doubt one, doubt them all. It spreads like a wild fire. Really, I've hit a wall here. Talk about tearing one another down rather than building each other up. Now we question expressions of LOVE? Pathetic. Being made in God's image and not being allowed to express the love He has given me because I now fear it will be seen as overused or fake or whatever. For the love of God, what is going on here?

Sorry but I'm slightly offended by this. When I am full of God's love, it is so easy for me to spread love around. Because of odd comments here and there at this site lately, I've been repressing that need. To me, that is what is really sad.

I'm just this side of disgusted.
Amen!!! Right there with you.....StirringWaters!!!

Wow, I just looked in my concordance and the list of scripture for love..... Well maybe Christians need to read and study more of how we are to love one another.

#1 the fruit of the Spirit is LOVE, then joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no LAW. Gal.5:22-23

I have never doubted what you think or what you are...I can feel your love from here

I wasn't even speaking of people specifically here...just people in general. And how we all say things that we really don't mean....I never even gave thought to any specific person.

Have a nice day! and feel the love
Sherry

I am beating my head against a wall. When you don't like what is said somewhere, you call off topic.
