“Jesus kinda fools around and gives you parables.
He doesn’t oftentimes say exactly what He means.
But, in Matthew 25, He’s very, very clear.
And He delineates what it takes to get into the Kingdom of Heaven
very, very clearly. And He says how you treat the least among us,
the least of our brothers, that’s how you treat Him.”

“Self-admiration has created a culture of narcissism and a “love gap” that diminishes us.
What the world needs most is a love that is the polar opposite of narcissism.
A love that is selfless and self-abandoning.
A love that does not ask,
“What’s in it for me?” but “What’s in it for those I am privileged to know?”
A love that isn’t about being served but serving others.
Your dreams come alive when you are preoccupied with making other people’s dreams come true.
That is where real happiness is found.”
~ Mark Chironna,
