Love Includes

When we take part in exclusion…we take part in delusion.

Luke 6:37

“Stop judging and you will not be judged. Stop condemning and you will not be condemned. Forgive and you will be forgiven.”

Jesus gives us a simple truth.

He said that when you judge or condemn someone…you separate yourself from that person.

You choose to make yourself the center of the universe.

This is delusional.

Who’s “in”? You are of course. Who’s “out”? The other person.

But the truth is…you can disagree with another and still remain in relationship.

Jesus showed us that the kingdom of God is about unity. There are no divisions…no borders…no nations…in the kingdom of God.

Mercy, forgiveness and compassion are the keys to the kingdom.

God’s justice is about restoring wholeness and unity. It’s not about separation and punishment.

When you throw someone else out…you throw yourself out as well!

Will you work for unity…or separation? Jesus message is clear.
