I like to be secure and powerful. But where do I pledge my allegiance? I choose the way of Jesus, which I believe is nonviolence, forgiveness and compassion.
This letting go of power and security for the other is UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.
As I pledge allegiance to Jesus alone, I am also pledging allegiance to love all refugees, people of all religions, people of all nations, and yes, all my enemies.
To what do you pledge your allegiance?
How do you live out that allegiance while being a citizen of your country?
What fears make you compromise your allegiance?
God of peace, I pledge allegiance to you alone. You are my security. I want to learn to love everyone like you showed us - even my enemies. I need your power to love like that.
