NOT a matter of choice!

"Whatsoever ye would that men do to you, do ye even so unto them."  Matthew 7:12
So commands our Lord and Savior to each and all that belong to Him.  If you want to be treated well, treat others well as you go about your day.  Does it always work?  Of course not.  But YOU will be the better for it!

The details of the day shall not deter me;

they might require adjustments as I go.
"Nothing new beneath the sun..." so echoes;
creation changes...not The Creator, though!
We love yet--but we do so with more caution
for ourselves and others--because we care;
God's love demands  we do so IF we love others,
even if, the same values, they don't share!

The times that we are in are like no other.

Those privy--they so look for His return!
Until that glorious Trumpet Blast, however,
continues there to be so much to learn!
Take care to be alert until that moment;
care also, though, to love your fellow man!
Regardless of his attitude or motives,
he still remains a part of Jesus' Plan!

This life is complicated.  And it seems to get more so with each new day to pass.  We WILL run into difficult, outright nasty people, but we are not to return the same to them.  God knows the heart.  EVERY heart.  He did NOT call us to be 'doormats,' but He will see to it that you are greatly rewarded for not returning evil for evil!
