We claim to love, we claim to care, and we claim to… well, whatever it is.
And if we are honest with ourselves how often do we fail?
I know in my case I find myself loving others how I think they should and need to be loved assuming it is all good and right. Do I ever ask them?
And what about God? I often run around trying to please him when maybe all he wants is for me to spend time with him?
Now go and learn what this means:
‘I desire compassion, rather than sacrifice,’
for I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”
Matthew 9:13 NASB2020
