Proverbs 29:27 The righteous detest the dishonest;
    the wicked detest the upright.

            The never-ending difference, the see-saw, the left or right, the rich or poor, the dark, the light. When we bring things down to a personal level and so identify the person with their performance according to a standard which is not necessarily even in agreement with the Word fo God we, both sides if you will, have stepped into a seat that is not ours to sit in. All we have accomplished is to find a place from which we might hurl our invective all the more loudly.

            What would Jesus do? You know the phrase. Charles Spurgeon once asked this question in a sermon, and later an author, published a book, In His steps, What would Jesus do (by Charles Sheldon.) No matter how you feel about the impossibility of living up to this highest of callings, the fact remains that when we consider this in the light of the verse above we are left with one possible course of action, learn, pray, and submit to the Holy Spirit when we are faced with the conundrum of visceral hatred rising within us as we put a face to sin.

            Jesus knew how and when to extend love to the sinners, those whose lives were lived antithetically to the desires of God the Father. This is hard for us. Our flesh tells us it is easier to walk away. God, help me to learn more completely the way of Love, that is the Way of Jesus.
