God measures as we measure. God pardons as we pardon. We are shown mercy to the degree that we show mercy.

The reflexive nature of God’s love is key to embracing the mystery of the divine. God makes us in His own image and likeness. How we respond to God and how we imitate God makes all the difference.

O God, someday I will owe you an accounting for my life on earth. May I have the foresight now to treat others as I hope to be treated by You.
