Love Unites

Luke 6:36-37
“Be merciful, just as [also] your Father is merciful. Stop judging and you will not be judged. Stop condemning and you will not be condemned. Forgive and you will be forgiven.”

The world has not changed. Humans continue to fight with each other and to kill each other. Jesus says to “love your enemies” (Luke 6:27). This is hard. It also would change the world. Some will never buy it. What about you? Many still live by the Old Testament rule of ‘an eye for an eye.’ Jesus threw out the old rule. Jesus made it quite clear that we are to love all people. To do this your mind has to transition to “non-dualistic” thinking. You have to be able to look at the world and not divide and separate everything into “what I like” and “what I don’t like” or “what’s in and what’s out”…making everything an “either-or” proposition. Your egocentric mind has to transition to seeing the world through a “both-and” lens. Allow today’s scripture verses to sink into your soul and allow Christ to transform you. The kingdom of God is at handif we cooperate.
