WHAT IF….???

WHAT IF… we could love people we view as opponents?
People whose lifestyles and opinions we disagree with,
People who hurt us,
People who belittle us,
People who betray us,
People who are unforgiving,
People who try their best to take us down.
… But how can we love people like this?

WHAT IF… we did not focus on the ways in which we disagree, and instead, focused on each other simply as human beings, created by the same God?

WHAT IF … we saw other people as having feelings like ours?
People who hurt, as we hurt,
People who cry, as we cry,
People who laugh, as we laugh,
People who strive, as we strive,
People who become ill, as we become ill,
People who will die, as we will die.

WHAT IF … we didn’t have to agree with them, or even like them, but only respect them?

What if we could love the unlovable?

Real love loves for love’s sake and not because the loved one is lovable.–Eugenia Price.

WHAT IF… our country depended upon it?

“A house divided against itself cannot stand.” –A concept familiar to Abraham Lincoln– and a statement by Jesus, recorded in all three synoptic gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke).

SO . .

WHAT IF…we decide that we’ve been too far away from each other for too long, and determine to act as ONE house?

WHAT IF . . . we put away our differences–in this time, in this place–for the sake of ourselves and our country?

WHAT IF … we finally come together as a nation of proud Americans????
