What is sometimes so hard for us to grasp – is how Jesus thinks of us. Sometimes that’s hard for us because of the bruises from the religious people we’ve known. And, honestly, the super-religious people who harassed Jesus and finally had him killed are still around doing the same old things that religious bullies always have: bruising people! Snuffing out candles that are barely lit. And it’s not just religious bullies who do that – all bullies do. They’re inspired by the master bully – and liar – the Devil. At His core – Jesus was gentle. He never walked into a room and stomped on people who were struggling. He once said that He was meek and gentle of heart. That carries an amazing thought; that the One who created everything – and the model leader we are called to emulate is meek. And that’s what makes Him the most astounding person who’s ever lived!
