At the Heart of It All

It's a passage we typically hear at weddings, but it's more radical than we realize. And it applies not just to couples starting a new life together, but to all of us. We are to love everyone without judgement, even if it makes us uncomfortable. Even if we disagree. Even if we are of different races and religions.

We don’t yet see things clearly. We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us!

But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love. (From 1 Corinthians 13, Eugene Peterson's "The Message")
