I remember having a conversation with a colleague of mine many years ago, about the fact that God loves each of us as if we are an only child. Each person who has ever lived, each one alive right now, and all those who are yet to live. It was a mind blowing thought. And when I came across this today, it reminded me of that:
It’s a high bar that Jesus sets. There are some people we just don’t like. But everyone of them is someone for whom Jesus was willing to lay down his life. Every one of them is precious to God.
And so are you.
Until tomorrow, dear friends, trust that God loves you (and everyone you meet) THAT much.
