Pick each other up IN LOVE and WITH LOVE

When a baby has a poopy diaper, we change it.

What if we left the baby in the poopy diaper because he’s comfortable and we don’t want to upset him because cleaning him up and helping him get out of the poop is a process and he’s tired and the wipes are cold and he’s pretty content the way he is.

No.

That would be neglect.

We change the diaper because we love him SO much. It’s called caring for him. We will change the diaper EVERY time it’s poopy. That’s how it should be.

We need to care enough for each other that we help each other out of the poop our lives are in. That is not wrong to do.

We need to matter SO much to each other that we notice and take the time IN LOVE and WITH LOVE to help lift each other out of the poop.

And it MUST be IN LOVE and WITH LOVE. It takes time and kindness. Sometimes after I know you love me, I will be able to listen to you and let you care for me.

That’s how it should be. We should matter.

One thought on “Pick each other up IN LOVE and WITH LOVE

  1. We don’t like to see our children in filth physically, spiritually, or metaphorically. Behaviors, friendships, and attitudes that fall short of healthy make us cringe. Like you, it hurts my heart to see others deceived by hurtful and sometimes neglected pasts that convince them that it is normal to be in that situation. We hope to show them a better way of life, not because WE are better, but because God has prepared a better way FOR them. Some just need to know that it is there. Sadly, there are still those who will deny their need to be washed.
