“If we want to make a point, we don’t need to pursue, know, or love someone. We can simply sit back, create a caricature of them, and shoot them. If we want to make a difference, we have to pursue them, get to know them, understand them, love them, and serve them.
Making a point is easy. Making a point will get you a rabid online fan base that loves it when there’s someone else’s blood in the water.
Making a difference is hard. Making a difference will get you attacked by that rabid online fan base that loves it when your blood is in the water.
But in the end, it’s not about us. It’s about Jesus. And I’d rather make a difference for Jesus than make a point about him. How about you?”
