      Take a Skittle Reading    - May 14, 2009

      Teens know a lot more about people than we give them credit for. My
      daughter was telling me yesterday, for instance, that if you want to
      know how much people truly like you, approach them when they have a bag
      of Skittles. If they don’t readily offer to fork over a Skittle or two,
      no real love there. If they offer, but they‘re the kind of friends who
      pour them into their own hand first, then pick you out a yellow or a
      green one, still pretty surfacey, wimpy kind of love. If it’s a real,
      genuine, unselfish love, they’ll give you a handful. And not just any
      random handful. No, they’ll make sure you get plenty of reds and
      purples. That’s love, man.
      Our goal should be to love people in the biggest taste of the rainbow.
      Unselfishly. All the way to the reds and purples. 1 Peter 3:8-9 gives us
      instruction in the red and purple life when it says, “Finally, all of
      you should be of one mind, full of sympathy toward each other, loving
      one another with tender hearts and humble minds. Don’t repay evil for
      evil. Don’t retaliate when people say unkind things about you. Instead,
      pay them back with a blessing. That is what God wants you to do, and he
      will bless you for it” (NLT).
      When we show that mature kind of love to each other, God blesses us. And
      I wouldn’t be one bit surprised to find out it makes him smile. That can
      make us smile, too.
      With all that smiling, by the way, you’ll probably want to make sure you
      don’t have anything red or purple stuck in your teeth.

        • I enjoyed reading that. Sometimes we all need to be reminded to love one another and not repay evil for evil. It is so easy to get caught up in disliking others and thinking you have to repay them for the mean things they say or do to you. You feel so much better when you are kind and generous to others and I do believe God blesses us for our mature love to others.  

          Thank you for that reminder. happy
