“…in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.”
Loving kindness – the care for every single body, the care for this world, living from the Easter message that God loves this world, that God brings heaven to earth.
Bring it here! Bring it now! Heal the sick, raise the dead, feed the hungry, clothe the naked, guide the blind. That prayer drove Christianity the first three centuries and unraveled Paganism with loving kindness.
That’s what Christians are still doing today. Because of Christianity, we believe the body is holy, we believe it is sacred. Do not give up. We believe in caring for every single person who is sick, who is aging, who is hurting. God loves you, God loves your body, and God wants to save your whole life right where you are, right now.
Prayer: Dear Lord, just as I come to accept my body as holy and sacred, help me to see others in the same light. Amen.
Reflection: How does your attitude and behavior change when you look at each person you meet as holy and sacred?
