The more I look, the more evidence I see that we have allowed ourselves to be defined by a desire to demonize, a need to win and a passion to make sense of the world in the most simplistic terms possible. Sure, that’s cynical. Yes, it’s snarky. Yet, sadly, it’s still true. But it’s also a fantastic opportunity to share the Jesus’ way with a world that’s longing for a new way to do life, even if it doesn’t know it yet. And it’s something you can do every single day. Look for all the ways God is at work around you right this moment. See every single person you encounter as someone Jesus loves so much he died for them. And lead with compassion in every interaction you have. As the old Christian song puts it so well, “It only takes a spark to get a fire going.”
