How much different would my life be if I ran my actions through fewer filters? Can you imagine Jesus being asked to heal and responding," Oh I was on my way to the synagogue. I'll catch you when I'm finished, and we'll take care of that disease then." What would it look like if I lived in imitation of the Father, who owns the cattle on a thousand hills and says his mercies are from everlasting to everlasting?
God's great love for me means I can't misrepresent that love to anyone else. His great love is the model for how to run our charities and churches. Above all, his love shows us how to love each other.
Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another. ~ John 13:34-35
