This week’s Bible reading from Jeremiah 31:31-34 lays it out.
God’s vision isn’t about who is the most worthy or the least deserving. It isn’t about who has the most money or who can scrape up enough change for bus fare. It is about love, forgiveness, and folks paying attention to one another.
It isn’t only for those who get it. It isn’t only for those who desperately need forgiveness. It isn’t only for those who are humble. It isn’t only for those who do terrible things. This vision. This love -- is for all those and all the rest.
So how does that work with so many people living out different interpretations of what God wants?
