“Just love them all and I’ll sort everything out later” – God This quote was posted on a sign outside a church. Whilst that may be somewhat trite and a little cheesy, it contains the uncomfortable truth that Love is the key.
For many of us this just seems too basic and don’t we have to defend our theology too? What is at the very core of the Trinity? When all is said and done what is left? What is God’s number one command to us? What motivated Jesus to come to earth and die? What’s the primary thing God yearns for from us? What is the most used word in the Bible? The answer to all these questions is: Love.
We weren’t created to correct peoples wrong views but to manifest the heart of God – which is love. If we are unable or unwilling to love God, to love ourselves, our family, our friends, those who we disagree with and our enemies then nothing else we do or say is of any great consequence (a ‘clanging gong’).

It doesn’t require much thinking about – its simple. Remember its not a ‘head’ thing it’s a ‘heart’ thing! You may be right but sometimes being right comes at too high a price. It really is possible to keep the peace without surrendering. It’s often much better to lose an argument and keep the relationship.
Just imagine what a powerful impact this simple ‘kingdom’ perspective would have on the divisions that abound in society; on our political upheaval, in our families, in business
Take out some time to sit with God and ask Him to reveal what this really means for you and what ‘in house’ changes He would like to suggest that would start to change your view of things.
