There is so much to talk about in Luke 6:37—42, that it's almost overwhelming.
We are never to judge, never to condemn, never to exclude, never to see anyone as without value or dignity—even the person we disagree with most.
We are not just supposed to tolerate people we disagree with. We are called to be a people of forgiveness and reconciliation.
Let us not judge or condemn. Let's instead forgive so we can break the cycles of hate in our world. Let's embrace others—even those we disagree with—with the same love that God has lavished upon us.
