Why is it that I look to Jesus and find only love? Is love to be my manual for living? Is love to be my starting place and goal? Is love to shape how I approach every situation and the very thing I should leave behind as I walk away? It seems a bit too simple, yet way too complicated. To be honest, I’d rather have a five point plan for every conceivable situation, and a seven point plan for those I cannot imagine. Can you make it happen, God?
You have loved us into existence as the Body of Christ, and if I am to be a part of the Body of Christ in the world today, then I guess I should make the life of Jesus my model. Encourage me in this great endeavor, and when I falter, show your mercy. What am I to do? I’ll start with love. Amen.
