I think we can.
For many years myself and a bunch of other volunteers have reached out to young people every Friday from disadvantaged backgrounds through sport (mainly soccer). One day as we arrived at the park (where we usually play), we saw a bunch of noisy kids surrounding something or someone. I tried to get their attention—without success. So I went there and pushed myself through, in the middle was a young white boy trying to make some friends (this was an extremely unusual situation as there are mainly black kids in the townships).
But Surprise taught me an important lesson:
He showed Weinard God’s love, even though he didn’t have much money and people around him weren’t happy. In fact, most people gave him a hard time. The bottom line is it wasn’t easy for him, but he did it!
Take some time and think about the following questions:
*How often do you keep God’s unconditional love from someone?
*Are you willing to pay the cost in order to share God’s unconditional love?
*Whom should you reach out to with God’s love?
*What is holding you back to love unconditionally?
