Monday Mini-Sermon

Every journey needs a few signposts.
When the destination is love, these five questions may give direction:

  1. Can I talk with a person whose morals offend me?
  2. Can I describe my neighbor's position so that he will agree that I have stated it fairly?
  3. Do I care about what is important to my neighbor?
  4. Can I take the first step toward my neighbor?
  5. Do I have the impulse to act for my neighbor when I see no immediate gain for myself?
