Tough Love

When you talk about love, a lot of people will say you’re soft. But love is what saves people. Loving them. If you ask me, that’s pretty strong stuff.

Think of a person who has a mental illness. Probably the best healing resource is just to love on them. They still need other sources of help, but just to love on that person instead of shunning him is going to help him. Maybe more than anything else.

What’s the response to a person that doesn’t have water? Love on them! Get them water. Everybody should have clean water. When you do that, you show them that you love them. The best way to show your love is to help provide this life-giving resource.

There are a lot of things that God shows me, things that are not good. Sex slavery is a terrible thing. It’s the devil’s way of perverting love. Think about it. Sexuality is one of the ways we show love. It’s pure and beautiful. But we’ve created slavery with it. It’s evil.

But God is showing me ways to help. How can I help a person trapped in the sex slave industry? Love on them! Love them by rescuing them.

God sees what’s wrong. What’s the sign of that? Look all the people willing to fight injustice! He’s opened my eyes to all these people who are so unselfish.

God spoke about injustice in scripture, and told us what we should do. He’s speaking to people about it now. Not only does He see what’s wrong, He’s showing us how to fix it. I really, truly believe that. He’s opened my eyes to a whole new area of humanity, of people who fight injustice all the time. They know that love saves people.

Who are these people? They are not hard to find. I’ve partnered with a few organizations devoted to rescuing kids from slavery, finding homes for orphans, feeding people who are going without food, and building wells in communities that don’t have access to clean water. You can connect with these organizations through my organization’s website.

You know I dream big, and you should too. Take a look at my Dreams page and add yours. I’d love to see what you dream about. See you Wednesday.

  1. Thank you for this! Brought to mind Micah 6:8 –
    He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
    And what does the Lord require of you?
    To act justly and to love mercy
    and to walk humbly with your God.

  2. My dream is to have Jeremy Affeldt be interested in helping save hundreds of people from injuring their hand when trying to separate frozen meat. Even a child can use this kitchen gadget, simple, safe, and all within a split second! Our dream would be that Jeremy Affeldt be interested in learning & hearing more about the “Spit Second”, and that we would believe in our product, and would actually endorse the Split Second.
