What made Jesus different from other teachers of His time was His disposition towards mercy. This orientation made it easier for others to see Him as genuine and different.
Jesus could readily distinguish between what was important and what could change. Love trumpet everything for Him, and it ought to do so for me, too.
O God, may my discernment imitate that of Jesus. May I be able to distinguish between the immutable, and what ought to bend to the arc of Love.
