A Friend Who Loves Me – Sue Love

This is a repost of an article originally authored by Sue Love. There is an awful lot of what I call “Christian fluff” being posted and articulated on the various social media apps these days and this meme that Sue writes on, is a prime example. God’s Word is not a smorgasbord that He puts out before us where we get to pick and choose those precepts that we are attracted to and walk past the precepts we would prefer to ignore. Never forget that Satan knows how to quote Scripture and misapply it. Never forget how Jesus corrected Satan when Satan did. The whole counsel of God is everything that God has placed before us, all of which, we are to consider. All of us would do well to seriously consider the observations that Sue has made.

    • Hi Sue, my pleasure and thank you for writing it! There is an awful lot of swill out there right now and you surely struck a cord with me and hopefully others. My wife Peg and I are having a rough time as of late, Peg can hardly get around now due to a spinal injury she had when very young that has finally raised its head. She can only walk with a walker now and with much discomfort, but we’re hanging in there. There’s an awful lot of God’s grace happening here for sure. All things considered, God is keeping our heads above water but I’ve been known to gulp a few times. Please keep us in your prayers as you and Rick are continually in mine. Some hard life lessons happening here that let me know how desperately I need God’s grace. Jesus is my ONLY hope! God’s blessings on you and yours as always. Love in Christ – Bruce

  1. Thank you for sharing this, Bruce! I am so thankful that I am not on social media. Anytime I hear quotes like what Sue shared, I say both to myself and whomever is around, “who is this God?!” I am thankful Sue took the time to address each part of the therapeutic feel good quote! Hope all is well with you and Peggy!!

    • Hi Mandy, yes, I agree, I often wonder (out loud), “who writes this stuff! It can’t possibly be anyone who spends time in God’s Word!” Peg and I are still hanging in there but I’m thinking we’re in the bleacher section. God’s blessings to you and Nathan! Love in Christ – Bruce

  2. “The whole counsel of God is everything that God has placed before us,” Thanks for highlighting her article. I like you am finding way too much fluff and though some of us love to encourage we ALSO must instruct and at times rebuke and correct. When we overlook those things because it is not comfortable, well, love is not love by being always comfortable. We have a brief span of natural life and then eternity. I am more concerned for my Brothers and Sisters eternity!
