Choosing to love means looking beyond a person’s job title, skin color, religious identity, nationality and those things that make them different from you. Instead, seeing them as a human being with needs, strengths, and faults just like you, and treating them with dignity and respect as you would like to be treated.
Life comes with celebrations and disappointments. It comes with victories and defeats. It comes with grace and injustice. What makes life beautiful is how we deal with it. If we choose to love first, we will have many more beautiful days than not.
Could it be that Jesus Christ was actually revealing to him the formula for how to live the ultimate life? I believe He was. In doing so, He gave us a formula to live by.
