A conversation at a new church inspires today’s word-of-the-week…
For example, He didn’t tell us that people we love will always agree with us. Or that “enough faith” makes things turn out the way we want.
After our conversation, I made my own list.
He didn’t tell us that loving our enemies would make them stop being our enemies.
He didn’t tell us that people would appreciate our compassion.
He didn’t tell us that drug addicts would stop using drugs if we start programs for them or that prisoners would stop committing crimes if we visit them.
He didn’t tell us that a nonviolent search for justice would be met with acceptance and understanding, that others wouldn’t take advantage of us.
He DID tell us to love our enemies, have faith, help others, visit prisoners, and seek justice.
