To the ones who throw stones…
To the ones who tear down…
To the ones who judge…
To the ones who crucify…
…this world hears your pointing fingers, your judgment, your cries of “Crucify! Crucify! Crucify!”
How does it feel to be a voice in the crowd that destroys?
I know. I have been there.
The day is coming. The day of resurrection. The victory of love over hate.
Won’t you join me?
A new crowd…a crowd that sits and weeps.
A crowd that enters the tomb with Jesus.
A crowd that chooses to be transformed from hate to love.
A crowd that chooses to throw compassion, not stones.
A crowd that lives in abundance, not fear.
The choice is yours.
Enter the tomb.
And be open to Christ’s transforming love.
