i don’t know what my role is in this big crazy world of ours.  i only know that i’m called to love everyone i come in contact with.

that’s what it’s all about, isn’t it?  love?

i think jesus said it best in matthew 22:36-40:

“Teacher, which is the most important commandment in the law of Moses?”

Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.” (NLT)

i may have different viewpoints than someone on things when it comes down to it [they’re a republican, i’m not / i’m a christian, they’re not] but even with these differences of opinion, i am called to love.

i don’t want to go out on a mission to change someone’s viewpoint about this, that, or the other.

i just want to love.

that’s what it really boils down to, anyway.

traveling mercies,
jdh
