Love What God Loves?

Christians must weigh this distinction: legislating morality vs. addressing the root immorality is a comparison (at minimum) between mere “salt and light” effect (which is good, especially for the immediate life in this tent, earth) and REAL HEART TRANSFORMATION which is only possible thru Jesus (which is great and ESSENTIAL for whatever permanent dwelling is ours after this immediate life)….

Dare I ask? Is our energy being wasted on what is surely passing away just so our OWN lives might be more comfortable, today? And to the degree this might be true, how do we gain an eternal perspective, and LOVE our neighbors enough to desire their eternal LIFE and relationship w/God MORE than our own comfort/protection/status quo?!

What about our efforts and passions would look different if we love what God loves, as WELL as we think we hate what he hates??

About Grace2Grow

Leah holds a Bachelor's degree in Philosophy, and considers herself a forever-student at heart, especially of the Word of God. The last few years have included a 160+ lbs weightloss, and a complete re-working of her "inner man" as she has had to journey from merely what she "knew" to putting that into "ACTION" .. a transformation that so rocked her core, she believes God's calling in her life includes a sense of "urgency," as the body of Christ is fully - knowingly or unknowingly - entrenched in These Last Days, just as Jesus prophesied. She has worked in various forms of professional Customer Service for nearly 20 years, from Mortgages and Banking to Automotive Plastics, and values most the opportunity to mediate and problem-solve. Leah has served over the years in varying roles, from Women's Bible Study Leader to Choir Director to Worship Leading to teaching Sunday School to working faithfully in the Nursery. She loves being a Wife and Aunt and Sister and Daughter and Friend, and loves to read just about anything she can put her hands on. She is always re-learning putting feet and muscle to these things, but she has learned there is incalculable value in "working the plan," and "being faithful with LITTLE so as to be entrusted with MUCH." And she is trusting her beloved God and Savior for the "much" yet to come. You can find more of her musings on her blogs at and, or follow her on Twitter at
