Amid insanity and chaos, it’s easy to lose our way. While it’s tempting to throw our support behind one side or another, we must remember the only side that matters is for us to be beside Jesus. He doesn’t choose sides in our human battles. He loves everyone the same. Jesus loves no matter the offense. Our call is to do the same and to be a light in the darkness. We need not hear or become another opinion in an already crowded sea of noise. We need the calming peace of Jesus.
Our job is to be peace and love in the middle of the divisiveness that threatens to tear apart both our culture and our civility. No one is blameless. Jesus taught us that. There is no high road. There is only the road to life everlasting and the road to Hell. It is not ours to decide who is on which road because each of us deserves Hell no matter how right or justified we might feel.
