To Love Like Him

God is Love.  Problem is I have a hard time loving like He does–like His Son does.  It’s easier to judge than love.  The following words have helped me find a good place to start.

“Nobody knows what we’re for

only what we’re against

when we judge the wounded.

What if we put down our signs

crossed over the line

and loved like you did . . .

Always looking around

but never looking up

I’m so double-minded.

A plank-eyed saint

with dirty hands

and heart divided.

Oh Jesus, friend of sinners

Open our eyes to the world

at the end of our pointing fingers.

Let our hearts be

led by mercy.

Help us reach with open hearts and open doors.

Oh Jesus

friend of sinners

break our hearts for what breaks yours.”
