People of Love

There is nothing
so steady and relentless,
so committed and enduring,
so firm and unwavering
as God’s love
for us.
Over and over again,
in story after story,
Jesus tells us that
the defining characteristic of God
is not anger
but love.

Yet we stumble around
in a fog of
misplaced guilt
and wrong attachments.
As children of God,
we are called to be
people of love,
people who accept
God’s love
and people who transmit
God’s love.
