I was reading through a journal I had been writing in for the past 6 months. I found this and I realized I never posted it. It was what Jesus looked like to me.
Jesus loved the unlovely.
Jesus didn’t show favoritism.
Jesus didn’t smile at people to their face and then mumble under His breath to others.
Jesus didn’t act courageous, then be shaking in His boots behind closed doors.
Jesus didn’t judge, though He had every authority to.
Jesus was others-focused and not selfish.
Jesus was obedient to His parents and to elders.
Jesus didn’t honor sacrifice over mercy.
Jesus didn’t go about tasks and forget about loving. He was ok with being interrupted by people. Jesus was all about people.
When I read this…
I am sure I love no one more!
I’m sure I have a long way to go to look like Jesus!
