Mathew 5:6

3

Reflection:

If you intend to be honest, sincere, and compassionate, you can expect blessings. If you hunger and thirst to “do the right thing” but are unsure of what the “right thing” actually is, trust in your heart that there is a higher power with you to guide you. Trust that this higher power knows your heart and your intentions as well! You don’t have to fundamentally change who you are as a gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender person to be a caring, loving, kind, generous, or compassionate person! If you seek to do good, you can! It doesn’t matter who you love– so long as you love and have love in your heart.

The most important thing we have been asked of our Lord Jesus is to love God with all our hearts and to love others as we would want to be loved. Know that while we may feel all alone in this world or feel that we go through life without many blessings or promises of a better life without hate, discrimination, or bigotry and harassment… the good we do for each other in the LGBT community and for others throughout our experiences still matter and make an impact and still count for something meaningful. The good we can do here on Earth will amount to blessings in God’s time and in heaven as well.

We are the change we wish to see in this world and we are the instruments of God’s work and plan. But always we must seek to do our best to be true to ourselves and to do the right thing, which is to love rather than hate.
