It’s one thing to know the biblical text. It’s another to be willing to follow it without question. How often do we engage in theological debate simply to avoid share love with those we choose to hate?

The words of Christ do not allow us to write off reconciliation for long simply because the ideal isn’t possible. We have to own our messes, and seek to engage in the forgiving grace of God’s love.
