Love Trumps (Even In A Election Year)

Most would say that highlighting “love” over facts and opinions in a charged election year would be tantamount to having a child that’s good at Legos be the architect for Manhattan’s newest skyscraper. We really tend to view love as a Plan B.  Actually, love as a Plan A directs all other plans. Think about your own life. The times you get thrown off, get discouraged or depressed or seem to be separated from the rest of the crowd is when love became your Plan B. Scripturally, it would be almost impossible to find an example of when the ordinary-who-became-extraordinary tried living their faith with love as a contingency plan. It just doesn’t work. Mature people of faith can overlay love during any crisis - whether these times are truly “unprecedented” or not. Each generation has faced equally distressing times as our current ones. Try inferring that we have it worse than those who made The Fourth of July possible to those in the graves of The American Revolution. It would be an insult to Jesus, Paul and every successive generation to say our contemporary mess trumps theirs. How about you and me? Plan A or Plan B. PORTAL TO HEAVEN: To Jesus’ dying breath, Christ never considered a Plan B. Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing." And they divided up his clothes by casting lots. Luke 23:34 NIV
