Cookie cutter, NOT wanted

"I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well." Psalm 139:14

Anyone with a heart for God knows compassion and love for others is the only answer in this terrified world.  We aren't called to understand others, but we are called to love. I cry knowing the enormous pain so many suffer needlessly from human cruelty. I cry seeing the ridicule, discrimination, and put downs thrown in the faces of people who do not fit the accepted cookie cutter's mold. Who decided what the perfect cookie mold should be?  Surely, not my God!  He has no mold. Look at us  --  He clearly prefers one-of-a-kind masterpieces. We are each uniquely designed by Him to fit perfectly in His perfect plan to help bring all people to Him.

God is not concerned about our happiness or looks but our holiness and heart. 
Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.  

Holiness in honoring God is exemplified by serving and loving our neighbors. And, who is our neighbor? Jesus clearly answers with the Samaritan story... Those we love and those we don't.  He calls us to move out of our uniformed cookie cutter's world and to care for His people... all of them.
Father, we need to genuinely love each other. Help us get pass what we see with our eyes, and see with Your eyes instead. As Your children, we must see people as You do, or we are no better than thieves... stealing the chance to show others Your glory. I pray for our lives be a testimony to Truth and love.  Break our heart for what break Yours.

have a love-filled day!
