God has a place for each of us. We must stay there until He calls us elsewhere.
Love is the root of Jesus' instruction. The early church wanted to make it more than that, just as we often want to make church more but love is the roof, the stem, and the plant of what He calls us to.
Love does not mean not being truthful ... it does mean being careful in how you present the truth.
It is amazing the attention that God wants to pay to each of us ... the relationship He wants to have with us ... the ways in which He strives to teach us.
No one ever said that living as a Christ follower would be easy. There will be adversity ... there will be moments of testing so strong we want to throw in the towel ... but we continue to follow because we know that God is in control.
