Loving the Unlovable

We live in the South now. If there was any doubt, tonight’s Bible Study erased it.

We’d just read “…for in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus” from Galatians 3.

“That means,” piped up one woman, “that Christians must treat one another as brothers and sisters in Christ, regardless of someone’s background. It doesn’t matter if you’re rich or poor, or what race you are, or where you’re from, or how old you are, or if you’re from the South or even from the North…it means we have to love Yankees,” she concluded seriously.

And then the rest of the room nodded in solemn agreement.

  1. I love how the first sentence engaged me, and then I could picture them agreeing to her.

    *switches NY license plates to NC ones* Hopefully that will save me until I open my mouth and give myself away with my Yankee-speak.

  2. Haha! I’ve spent some time in the South myself and they are so funny.

    I found your blog after you commented on mine–know that you remain in my prayers as does your husband.
