5 Posts on How and Who to Love
—Grace & Truth Linkup

I’m splitting up my five groups of five favorite things this month, sharing one per day. 


1. How Can You Love Your Political “Enemy”?

We can hardly even TALK to our political opposites lately. How can we do better? Here are tips from Beyond Your Bubble.

2. Love Yourself by Changing Your Mind

We cause ourselves unnecessary emotional pain when we think untrue thoughts. Show yourself more love by tweaking your thought patterns.

3. 3 Tips to Spread Love Online, Not Hate

Here are 3 tips to make a more peaceful internet by taming our digital tongues in our online relationships.

4. You Are Called to Be a Minister of Love 

Every believer is called to be a special kind of minister: a Minister of Reconciliation. What does that mean? Healing relationships requires love of a special kind. 

5. Keep Your Honesty; Add More Love

It feels good to always be right, but it’s always right to be more loving. Love matters the most. 

Featured Post—The Loss of Love to Suicide

And with love also comes grief.

Heather tells us about losing a friend this summer to suicide.

If you’ve lost anyone to suicide—or walked with someone who is suicidal (even yourself?)—then you’ll relate to Heather.

She also tells the anxiety that gripped her at the fear of losing another person she loves dearly.

Read all of Heather’s post here at her and Valerie’s blog, CandidlyChristian.com.

    Thanks for hosting, and what a great compilation of posts! Yesterday, I participated in a discussion about how to love as Jesus loved in our current cultural, political, and economic climate. It was an excellent discussion and reminded me that loving others isn’t always easy—and neither is discerning exacly what love looks like.

    Thank you for more great thoughts on a topic that sounds easy, but is so much more complex than I realized. I love that so many Christ-follwers are thinking deeply about what love looks like and engaging in these types of conversations

    Wishing you a fantastic week!

    We need this post now more than ever, Lisa. If enough of us promote love rather than hate, it has to make a difference in our world and our country. My mindset has changed since I began praying for our leaders – even the ones I don’t agree with.

    Lisa I loved all of your “5 things” posts, but this is my favorite. Full of great information all in one neat package! Thank you for compiling this and sharing it. Thank you also for sharing Heather’s article, it was a blessing to read her story.
