The fact that Jesus’ teaching in the Gospel utilized experiences from everyday life is a powerful reminder that your journey into deeper discipleship does not occur isolated from everyday life, but rather occurs right in the midst of the joy and muck of real life. This is where you experience the fullness of Jesus’ love. This is where you entrust yourself to it fully. This is where it transforms you from the inside-out. And this is where you share it with others. What a gift! Think of the possibilities! Today – with all of its ups and downs, victories and defeats, and joy and pain – is still the best place possible to experience Jesus’ real love.
