It’s a stretch

If you are kind only to your friends, how are you different from anyone else? Matt. 5:47

Different love stretches beyond nice,  safe, predictable friendships. The love of Christ is expansive, inclusive, fearless, selfless, and often messy. His love kicks open doors, expands closed circles,  stretches limited perspectives, and sometimes creates awkward social situations and inconvenient relationships.

Lord, stretch my love as far as Your love reaches.
