Love One Another? Ummm… Seriously?

“Love one another as You are loved, Beloved!”

That’s a quote from my last post, and a pretty familiar one to most of you, I’m sure. But what I really want to share is a response to it that was posted elsewhere–

“If I loved others the way I have been loved, I’d be in jail.”

The bitterness in that response is palpable. Scathing. And I UNDERSTAND.

Even though the quote did not say “as you have been loved.” ESPECIALLY because it did not say “as you have been loved!”

We are disappointed in one another. We have let one another down. Too many broken promises, too many betrayals… too much divisiveness! There is a kind of battle fatigue in the air… have we been at WAR with one another?

We have not been loving one another, that’s for sure.

It is easy to point to the government. Blame the government for the shape we’re in!

Okay. THEN what?

I’m tired, too. But I know that in my daily life, I’m not thinking about the government when things go wrong in my own personal stuff!

BLAME doesn’t solve anything, either.

We need a change.

What about love?
