The Beauty Of Loving People
You Think You Do But You Don't
Sure, we’ll say, “All people matter to God.” But how many of us believe it enough to actually live like that? And how many of us are looking for the loophole when it comes to loving people? See, the moment we begin bargaining and rationalizing who we’re allowed to NOT love, well, then we don’t really love people. We think we do, but we don’t.
Here at Chesapeake, our three core values are: All People Matter To God, Full Devotion To Jesus Christ Is Normal, and Excellence Honors God.
Excellence tends to display itself in all kinds of ways. And Full Devotion is more easily recognizable, too. But the value of All People Matter To God – this can be a bit harder to see at times.
It shouldn’t be this way.
So what if we did something about that? What if we made loving people visible? What if we so clearly displayed excellence and our devotion to Christ in the way we love people? And not just those who are easy to love – but even loving the unlovely. Imagine the community we would be if together we made our God known through the beauty of loving people.
Because if All People Matter To God, shouldn’t all people matter to us?
