We honor and acknowledge Jesus for many things: as teacher, as preacher, as healer, as Messiah, as Lord, as Son of God. And he is a breaker of rules. Jesus goes where he shouldn’t, and does what he mustn’t, and shows us that God can be found even where we think God isn’t, or can’t, or won’t possibly be.
– Br. James Koester, SSJE
A provocation for your day:
What rules do you hold – perhaps inadvertantly – about where Jesus can and cannot be found, where his love can and cannot enter? Jesus invites you to smash those lies. Look for Jesus’ loving mercy in the least expected places today.
