“Our job is to love others without stopping to inquire whether or not they are worthy.” Thomas Merton

 

Because in God’s eyes, we’re ALL worthy. Do you understand that? ALL. OF. US. Not just the ones who believe what I believe. Not just the ones who look nice on the outside. Not just the ones who are outside of prisons.  Not just the ones who live above the poverty line.  Not just the ones who love members of the opposite sex. Not just the ones who vote the same as me. Not just the ones who call God by the same name as me. ALL. OF. US.

All of you are worthy in God’s eyes, not matter what you’ve done. When asked which of the 10 Commandments was the most important, Jesus said forget them. Forget about everything else you’ve read. The past is in the past. He came and wiped the slate clean. He told us the only 2 thing we needed to do were these:

  1. To love God with our whole heart, our whole mind and our whole soul, and
  2. To love each other as we love ourselves.

Well, there must be a whole lot of people out there who don’t love themselves very much, based on how they treat others.  All kinds of people.  Some people who follow Allah, some people who don’t follow anyone nor anything, and some people who follow Jesus.  But I’m telling those people right now – YOU ARE WORTHY.  You have it.  From Him.  From me.  Now start GIVING it.  Please.
