The choice to love

Years ago, I received an angry email from an acquaintance who was furious with me for some actions I had taken. He assaulted my character, slandered my record, attacked my religion, and threatened to exact ugly revenge if I didn’t retract my decision and obey his demands. 

He had a reputation for treating other people this way, but I had never faced this myself. I considered his points and saw no reason to change my course of action. But I was crestfallen and taken aback by this viciousness and malice. In praying for a healing response, I knew I had a choice to make. I could either fear this individual and dread his threats, or choose to love him. After hours of wrestling with pride, ego, and fear, I chose love. 

We'd love to hear from you!
