Flesh and Blood

Until you put flesh and blood on the commands of God and of Yeshua/Jesus, they remain theological abstractions.

  1. What does it look like to “do unto others” (Matt. 7:12; cf. Lev. 19:18,34)?
  2. What does it look like to “be compassionate as your Father in heaven is compassionate (Lk. 6:36)?
  3. What does it look like to “love your enemy” (Matt. 5:44; cf. Ex. 23:4-5)?

Look over to your spouse, your children, your neighbors, and especially those you are in conflict with, and see their flesh and blood, the life God has created in His image and likeness, and His love and care for them, then go and do likewise (Lk. 10:37).

Be well. Shalom.
