Thought for the Day: Ava DuVernay is an American Filmmaker who said, “When we’re talking about diversity, it’s not a box to check. It is a reality that should be deeply felt and held and valued by all of us.” I not only agree with this idea, but I find her words to ring true in so many aspects of life. We as human beings are often looking for the swiftest way a meeting the minimum requirement for checking the box as completed, but doesn’t that communicate exactly how much we value it… or maybe I should say how little we valued it? When it came to love, Jesus did not set the bar low. In fact, he invited his followers to give the fullness of their lives to the work of love. Following Jesus should never be about checking boxes, but should be so deeply felt that we are willing to give the full measure of our existence to that life.
Prayer: Continue to inspire within me, O Lord, the self-giving and self-sacrificing love put on display in Jesus. It is a high calling, yet the one to which you have called us all. Amen.
