What if we all practiced compassion?
(Listen to my song “Breathe On Me” by clicking HERE)
“I have other sheep that do not belong to this fold. These also I must lead, and they will hear my voice, and there will be one flock, one shepherd.”
We all start out in life believing that we are at the center of the universe.
It’s all about me.
Sadly, some people never seem to get beyond this delusional perspective.
The ego feeds on being separate from others…inflating its own self-importance…always judging who is right and who is wrong. Of course…the ego always judges itself to be right!
The ego wants me to believe that I am on the winning side…that I am in the “in” group. Of course, that would mean that someone else is not.
When we exclude we are clearly not being Christian. Jesus reached out to all the outcasts.
He insisted that all will be one flock and that he will be the one shepherd.
This is what the kingdom of God is about…diverse yet one.
For this to happen…egos will have to diminish. As John the Baptist said, “Jesus must increase; I must decrease” (John 3:30).
Ask yourself: “How can I change to be more merciful and accepting that everything and everyone belongs?
