Balance – Luke 6:17-26
Human life is like an ecosystem. When one part is out of balance it has severe consequences for the whole. Imbalance leads to suffering, oppression and war. Jesus preaching on the plain sets a counterpoint to this imbalance. He calls us to repentance and to change our hearts. He asks us to have compassion with those who suffer and to feel their pain as our own. And when we open our hearts like that, we need to muster the courage to act, as we would like us to act when we were they.
