We dedicate so much of our lives trying to fit in and feel like we belong. With each passing year we realize the brokenness of our world and its inability to satisfy the longings of our heart. More and more feeling out of place might actually be a good thing? God's Son unsurprisingly seemed out of place when he came to this earth. Therefore, it shouldn't surprise us when the same is true of those who follow him. All the more we want to discover the beauty of knowing we don’t belong. Today our Savior reminds us that while we don’t belong to this world, we do belong to the family of our heavenly Father. That changes how we interact with those who hate and mistreat us. Just as our Father is always merciful to us, Jesus says, we are free to be merciful to our enemies and share with them, do good to them — yes, even love them.
