Thoughts on Today's Verse...
From this verse, we can see that God has His principles in treating people. Only those who truly, yearn for His words, practice His words and follow His will are pleasing to Him, and are our brothers and sisters. God says, “Love what God loves, hate what God hates. That is, the people loved by God who truly pursue the truth and who do God’s will, are the people you should love. Those who don’t do God’s will, those who hate God, those who disobey God, and those who are despised by God, are people we should despise and reject. That’s what requires.” From God’s words we can see that God not only has love and mercy, but has principles in treating people. God also says, “The standard by which man judges man is based on his behavior; one whose conduct is good is a righteous person, and one whose conduct is abominable is wicked. The standard by which God judges man is based on whether one’s essence obeys Him; one who obeys God is a righteous person, and one who does not obey God is an enemy and a wicked person, regardless of whether this person’s behavior is good or bad, and regardless of whether this person’s speech is correct or incorrect.” This passage of God’s words clearly tells us that God doesn’t look at whether one’s behavior is good or bad; He only sees whether or not one truly spends for Him. No matter what God does and what God permits to come upon us, if we can fear God and obey His orchestration and arrangements, we are righteous in the eyes of God and we are the brothers, sisters, and mothers mentioned in God’s words.
