Good reminder

From Brennan Manning:

The Rabbi implores, “don’t you understand that discipleship is not about being right or being perfect or being efficient? It’s all about the way you live with one another.” the success or failure of a given day is measures by the quality of our interest and compassion toward those around us. We define ourselves by our response to human need. The question is not how we feel about our neighbor but what we have done for him or her. We reveal out heart in the way we listen to a child, speak to the person who delivers mail, bear an injury, and share our resources with the indigent.

  1. Hey Brian! This is an amazing post. The part about the day being a success or failure being based on our interest and compassion. Dang. Why don’t you just punch me in the face? I totally suck at that because I am so selfish. Please pray for me, and I will work on being closer and more like Christ. Dang.
