6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;
7 bears all things,
believes all things,

The greatest Commandment Jesus gave us was to "Love one another"
Even though this just doesn't come easily for any human been, doesn't mean we shouldn't try to love one another.
I changed the word "Love" for my name to see how it will sound, I was laughing so hard when I red it back because it sounded so ridiculous to me! because it doesn't even come close to who I am.
After reading and laughing, I thought about who are the people in my life that I need to love more, a couple of names came into my mind, even though I know that these people have never like me because of who I am (Latino) I have decided to reciprocate with LOVE.
If I'm going to try to love these people, I would need to love them for who they are and not for the things they do. These things are the only thing that had prevented me for loving them, specially when it comes to God's name, I won't tolerated people using God's name to cover up for their mistakes...So this is no gonna be easy! But I believe that is for God to judge and not me.
