“How terrible it will be for you, Chorazin. How terrible it will be for you, Bethsaida. If the miracles done among you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have changed their hearts and lives long ago. They would have sat around in funeral clothes and ashes. But Tyre and Sidon will be better off at the judgment than you. And you, Capernaum, will you be honored by being raised up to heaven? No, you will be cast down to the place of the dead. Whoever listens to you listens to me. Whoever rejects you rejects me. Whoever rejects me rejects the one who sent me.” (Luke 10:13-16, CEB)
I read this and I think of Jar Jar Binks from The Phantom Menace. “The bosses will do terrible things to me if I be going back there…” Some people like Jar Jar and others think he is the downfall of the Star Wars empire. I think he is a great character that adds to the move and brings in a new race of beings. Why fault someone for adding a creature we do not like. And why do we have to like everything?
We all have been warned of things before. And sometimes we listen and sometimes we don’t. And that sometimes leads to things we wish would not have happened.
The bottom line in all of this is we are to love all and share with all.
We are give love to share with the world and we need to do that. Not based on who is worthy or how we view people or things but equally to everyone.
So go and love.
Loving People. Loving God.
