Does Your Religion Interfere with Loving Others?

Good Morning Saints,
I have a question for you: Does your religion interfere with loving others? If it does, is it really based on love or exclusion? We have to be so careful embracing beliefs and mannerisms thoughtlessly or taking words of wisdom    out of context. Now, this is difficult to do. It is absolutely, "no easy task." I believe that we must stay in constant prayer and steeped in His Word in order to love others the way Christ loves us. We have to stay away from condemnation, for we have our hands full taking care of our own sins and asking for forgiveness. I challenge you to examine your religion, culture and beliefs, in general, and dissect them. Remember, anything that man has built will be flawed. In fact, as soon as we "get our two feet" into anything, it becomes tainted by our experiences and thoughts--it's just human and unavoidable. That doesn't mean that we can't do great things and love people. It's just necessary that we understand our limitations and know that we need God in order to perform at our best. We just have to make sure we are aware of this and constantly lifting our thoughts, words, and deeds to Him. Many blessings!

Scripture of the Day
Little children, let us not love [merely] in theory or in speech but in deed and in truth (in practice and in sincerity). 1 John 3: 18
