Easter is about the Other

Easter is about others. It is easy to think that that means family, but that is not what I mean.

Of course we should have great concern about family. If all is not right with family that is the first priority we should have.

Family is an extension of ourselves. Loving our families of absolutely critical, but it falls short of loving others, since it can easily be an expression of self love.

Easter is about loving others. Loving the unsaved. Loving our enemies.

Easter is about eternity and judging everything through the vantage point of eternity. And remembering that we cannot truly love those if we do not care about them in the broad picture of life.
