People who get love right, get life right.

What can we learn about loving each other by examining how God loves us? We know God’s love for us is unconditional. But love without condition doesn’t mean love without confrontation. Grace without truth isn’t love, but He shares that truth with compassion. What would happen if you shared that unconditional love, that truth with compassion, with your neighbor? What would happen if you considered every encounter with another human to be holy ground?

It’s one thing to have compassion on a child, or the sick, or the needy. How do you show that consideration to people who drive you nuts? How do you show compassion to a critic, a rival, an enemy? Maybe compassion would start by stepping into their world and offering a little grace yourself. Maybe compassion would understand who they are and what they really need; a friend who really cares. We all crave a world with more love. Compassion is an indispensable quality of love and people who get love right get life right.
