Greetings Dear Reader,

With a firm foundation of love employed to be unoffendable, we find that we are in a position to support many good things. Please do not think that I call the path easy or painless. It is not. What I do say is that everything is more manageable from this position on our scaffolding.

From the perspective this purchase provides, one can find a freedom that is unparalleled. If we ponder the needs of the world, most of them go unmet because others do not feel free to meet them. Unfortunately, this feeling comes from our own selfishness or insensitivity. We fear that our wants and needs will not be met, therefore, we withhold generosity and kindness when it is warranted.

A theology of love finds its sufficiency in Christ and the promises of provision of all our needs. The life we lead can be filled with kindness, generosity, and compassion. Worry and fear can be set aside. We can journey home in peace. It is our choice. The Father promises us the grace to endure anything if we seek him with all that we are.

It is clear that there is an entire book in understanding this way of life. Jesus, however, condensed it into simple the acceptance by faith of two instructions. Loving the Father with all that we are and loving each other unconditionally yields a life where we are free to be good to everyone. It is a moment-by-moment choice to take each step in the peace of Christ provided by these two supports. When then build being unoffendable and walking in peace on that.

I realize that this may sound idealistic or puerile, Dear Reader. I have not found a single objection that does not require fear, doubt, or abandoning faith to make it a reality. We are required to live by faith, without fear, and filtering our doubt through both. What we can obtain is a view of the world that reveals the reasons behind the pain and need others carry. We can see clearly how Christ could also mend their hearts and give them peace.

From this place, we may also see how little most of our differences make when we all share the same need. One does not care if the air smells like daffodils or skunks if one is gasping for air. The air is sufficient. The same is true of our need for Jesus, Dear Reader. As we conclude this tomorrow, we can approach the path of following Christ through Holy Week to the cross we must take up and beyond. I hope you journey with me.

Wishing you joy in the journey,

Aramis Thorn

Every human story is part of the great story that leads to the Father getting everything back to Good.
