Made in God’s Image

Barbara Brown Taylor writes,

Watch how Jesus practices what he preaches and you will note that his teaching is not limited to people who look, act, or think like him.  He does the same eye-to-eye thing with Roman centurions, Samaritan lepers, Syro-Phoenician women, and hostile Judeans that he does with his own Galilean disciples……With the possible exception of his own family, no one is dismissed from his circle of concern, for no one made in God’s image is negligible in the revelation of that same God (Altar in the World, 97).

How might you “practice what you preach” today?  Who will you look “eye-to-eye” with as you open your circle of concern?
