Seth Godin writes: If you believe what he believes, you'd do precisely what he's doing. Think about that for a second. People act based on the way they see the world. Every single time. Understanding someone's story is hard, and a job that is never complete - but it is worth the effort.
Let me take this, and add scriptural truth it is sharing.
If you believe the words of Jesus, that is believe they are true, you will want what he has, and will do what he did. If you see the world through love, if you reject hate and love your enemy, if you hand over fear to the Father, and be in constant contact with your creator . . . you will always see this world as Gods, and see it in the terms under which he is operating.
So understand someone's story as God sees their story. It is so worth the effort. You'll find you enter into Kingdom Living, and His peace, his love, will be yours.
