In a recent conversation, I found that someone I know didn’t have much love for another person I hold dear. I immediately got defensive because I knew that this person really didn’t know my loved one that well. If they could see past the exterior, I believed that they would have a whole new respect and care for the other person.
As with every situation that leaves me feeling unsettled or uncomfortable, I asked myself what I can learn from it.
From that perspective, I thought about how and why Jesus gets a bad rap.
