Following Jesus means letting go of our judgments, embracing humility and our humanity in order to see through the eyes of Godâs love.
Humanity around and within
It’s a slippery slope, letting go of the lines that divide, seeing people different from yourself as human. Let the walls that make me an “us” and they a “them” crumble, and there is a world of humanity to love. No longer can you ignore the vulnerability, the humanity, the absolute sinner and saint in all of us. No longer can you push others aside or arbitrarily categorize them.
Confronted by the humanity around us, we confront the humanity within us and expose our collective brokenness. We come face to face with the things we are capable of, for ill or good. We lose the ability to hide behind our self-righteousness or be cozy in our carefully constructed boxes of absolutism and superiority.
