I want to share another one my favorite quotes for you, this time from Jesus in the Gospel of John:
“By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
I LOVE that so much, because it really disrupts and flips our priorities. Just like I said in yesterday’s love letter if someone wants to know more about your faith they’re going to look at how you treat people, and how you actually live. We can go on and on about what we believe about God, the world and humanity, but it really doesn’t matter if you don’t love.
I dream of a day where the word “Christian” is more universally associated with love. I dream of a day when someone can mention the word “Christian” and people respond: “Oh yeah, those are the people that never stop loving people and talking about God’s love for the world.”
I dream this for my own tradition, but it also enables me to work with anyone Christian or non-Christian who is committed to love. Love transcends all boundaries and allows us all to work together for the greater good. Ultimately I want my legacy to be love. I want people to say “Damon loved people and so did everyone around him.” I invite you to desire the same legacy!
