Love is the lens through which I read scripture. When I read claims that God has done or has threatened to do something sadistic to members of the human family, I ask: "Would Love do that?" If the answer is no, then that passage is just a scribe's drama.
This is so true. This hit me hard the day that my boyfriend's mother died. We had gone to the airport to pick up his sisters, and life was just moving on. It was incredible, but it makes me think twice about what I say to who I meet, because you never know what others are going through.
