Love Endures


Be the compassionate change we so desperately need.

Mark 3:5

Looking around at them with anger and grieved at their hardness of heart, he said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” He stretched it out and his hand was restored.


Jesus was always about healing people, bringing them together and restoring them to wholeness.

But the religious leaders at the time were more concerned about doing their religion.

The law was absolute.

They were angry that on the sabbath…Jesus cured a man’s withered hand and that his disciples were picking heads of grain…breaking the religious rule against doing any labor on the holy day.

Jesus was “angry and grieved at their hardness of heart.”

A religion should be leading its followers to become more merciful, compassionate and forgiving…but, sadly, many times it does the exact opposite. 

Christianity should be leading you to reach out in acceptance and love to others who are in need…just like Jesus did.

It should be leading you on a transformational journey to wholeness, awareness and becoming your true self.

In your time of need…Jesus reaches out his hand to you in unconditional love.

We are called to do the same.
