People are like onions: they have a lot of layers! And the more layers we see of every individual, the harder it can be for us to get along with some of them. But in the Church, we have a responsibility to put aside our differences and look past the “onion rings” of each person. We’re called to love one another the way God first loved us.
God can use each of us to make a difference — not because of who we are or what we can do, but because of who Heis and what He can do through us! The Lord wants His Church to be united together, each part working as they were designed and called. When that happens, the world is radically changed.
When we’re mindful of the great lengths of God’s forgiveness for us, we find ourselves going to great lengths in loving others all the more. So let’s break down the walls that we’ve hidden behind, to experience holy intimacy with one another in a way that lets go of hatred, animosity, insecurities and indifference.
