“Love is not selfish and self-centered. :: Love can be sacrificial. :: And in so doing, becomes redemptive. :: And that way of unselfish, sacrificial, redemptive love can change lives
and it can change this world. :: If you don’t believe me, just stop and think and imagine a world where love is the way. :: Imagine our homes and families when this way of love is the way. Imagine our neighborhoods and communities when love is the way. Imagine our governments and nations when love is the way.
Imagine business and commerce when this love is the way. Imagine this third old world when love is the way. :: No child would go to bed hungry in such a world as that. :: When love is the way, we will let justice roll down like a might stream and righteousness like an ever-flowing book. :: When love is the way, poverty will become history. When love is the way, the earth will be a sanctuary. When love is the way, we will lay down our swords and shields down by the riverside to study war no more. :: When love is the way, there’s plenty good room — plenty good room — for all of God’s children. When love is the way, we actually treat each other like we are actually family. When love is the way, we know that God is the source of us all. We are brothers and sisters, children of God. :: Brothers and sisters: that’s a new heaven, a new earth, a new world, a new human family. ::
