The Kingdom of God and the Cost of Love
Thank you so much Michael for your insights. I often find myself struggling to focus on someone with mindful attention but it is indeed the greatest kindness we can give our fellow humans.
I will be speaking in church this week with the prompt from Luke 10 where Christ is asked “Who is my neighbor?” Your writing clarifies how we can interact in a meaningful and higher way with our neighbor.
God be with you.
Reading this remarkable essay within days of David Brook’s likewise inspiring essay on the feminine way to wisdom has been, I believe, a divine directive and bracing call to repent. So grateful for this text and the meaningful effort required to write it. And now to that repentance...
Thank you! Thank you (words seems inadequate to express my gratitude), for this is such an articulate and inspired piece for our time and for all. I will spread it far and wide and will use some of your thoughts (with reference) for a talk I'm giving at the stake RS annual breakfast. I am speaking on Christ is the Relief. Very thankful to have received this just now as it works so well with the other things I am saying. You are an inspired messenger. A thousand thank you's.
Thanks much, Michael, for this thoughtful piece. I needed to read this article today.
