"Owe no one anything except to love one another. For the one who loves fulfills the law." Romans 13
You know Christian discipleship isn't necessarily dramatic or made up of stupendous acts of generosity; to be a follower of Jesus is to do those daily, simple acts of kindness and love that make the world a more welcoming place. Buzz and Lillies' acts at Christmas cheer were but icing on the cake of how they lived with their neighbors everyday. "They were the greatest neighbors we ever had," another Greek immigrant said at his funeral to me.
I hope that will be said of me on that day when I am laid to rest: "Pastor Dave loved; he was kind and merciful and generous; he owed no one anything except to love them."
Peace, Pastor Dave
