Anyone remember a band from the glorious 80’s called Depeche Mode? They once wrote these lyrics:

‘Now I’m not looking for absolution / Forgiveness for the things I do / But before you come to any conclusions / Try walking in my shoes’ (listen here: http://bit.ly/1ArsvpJ )

Want to know how to relate to your parents, friends, teachers, the people you hate, the people who are bullied, who are mocked because they have some disability, are poor, HIV positive, or gay?

Walk for a bit in their shoes.

Would I want to be respected? Would I want people to talk to me – even if I’m not that fun to be around?

Ok then, that’s how to treat those people Love in action, Jesus style 🙂

That’s love in action – Jesus style.
