It Was Love…

When we look around the world today and we look at how people treat each other, what do we see?  Quite often we see selfishness, hatred, anger, a lack of respect for human life, an unrepentant and unforgiving society.  As a human race we have free will and this is how we have chosen to live?  This isn’t new, as you can read in the Old Testament the exact same behaviors were happening in a different time…so what could we possibly do to change this?  What can we do to try to make things different?  Better?  We can look to the One who was tortured in every way possible and follow His example…the man who did no wrong and was sentenced to die on a Cross…and after He was flogged, beaten, He had thorns pushed into His head and after He was hung on that Cross to die in a horrible way…He asked God His Father to forgive them?  How in the world could He do that?  It was love…Amen.
