When God tells us to love everybody, even those who don’t love us back (Matt. 5:44/Luke 6:27-28), isn’t this an imitation of the way God loves?
When God tells us to be generous and give to everyone (Matt. 5:42/Luke 6:30), isn’t this a reflection of God’s universal generosity?
When God tells us to be merciful and compassionate (Matt. 5:48/Luke 6:36), aren’t we following the example of God’s compassion and mercy?
When God tells us to be nonviolent in the face of violence (Matt. 5:39-40/Luke 6:29), isn’t it because God is the ultimate pacifist?
When God tells us to forgive without condition or limit (Matt. 6:14-15/Luke 6:37), can’t we assume that God’s forgiveness is limitless and unconditional?
Surely God doesn’t have lower standards of behavior for Herself than She has for us.
So when God tells us to refrain from judging others (Matt. 7:3-5/Luke 6:41-42), isn’t the implication that God is not in the judgment business?
We think so.
In the end, we believe, God will gather all Her children unto Herself. Every. Last. One.
“On this mountain God will make a feast for all people.” (Isaiah 25:6)
“Can a woman forget her nursing child, or show no compassion for the child of her womb? Even these may forget, yet I won’t forget you.” (Isaiah 49:15)
