That's The Hard Work
With some of the people we love most from the Revolution community falling ill or going through tough times, life and circumstances has brought a few of us non-prayers back to praying. So, Jay decided to talk about the prayer of all prayers–The Lord’s Prayer. In really diving into it and breaking it all down Jay sees a pattern emerging: forgiveness. To forgive as we are forgiven. How the prayer calls for us to be in a constant moment of forgiveness–a continuing cycle of forgiving others and being forgiven. Jay also talks about the tough journey of empathy and how it’s so important to see the humanity in others because people are people and we all suffer. We’re all fighting our own battles. Because of that we really need to try and put in the hard work and become a safe place for others. A place where they know there is no judgement or condemnation. A place they know they can turn to. A place where we don’t focus on the specks in their eyes but instead deal with the log in our own. Seeing that maybe their specks aren’t that big of a deal compared to the hefty logs we’re carrying around. We need to have a passion for redemption, for love, for forgiveness…for doing the hard work.
