For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him. (John 3:17)
Jesus didn’t come here to condemn the world, so why do we think we can speak ill of others, put others down, pass judgment on others, ridicule those who we disagree with, make fun of others, mock people who look or believe or vote differently than us, or disregard those who are trying to be our friends? If Jesus, who has every right to condemn, chooses not to, maybe we shouldn’t either! If Jesus, who chooses love, even after our ancestors persecuted, tortured, and killed him, maybe we should choose love too! My sisters and brothers in Christ, let us choose love and service instead of condemnation and judgment! Amen!
