Compassion for the Insane

I remember a friend once told me how smart their father was in terms of theological understanding, and said "He always wanted to be a Pastor, but just didn't have enough compassion for people to make it.


As if that were a natural stop point impossible to overcome. Now, I'm preaching to myself here. I don't like a whole lot of people, either. I prefer my personality. But, this is a moral failure. Not who I'm content to be.

Because God ferociously loves the very same people I can't stand. And I desire to do the same.
