  1. excellent insight!
    funny...I knocked some old file off my bookshelf yesterday, and put it all back up, except for one sticky note I accidentally left out. I read it earlier today. It was a question I wrote some years ago. Here was the question, "Are we supposed to treat others the way we'd treat Jesus?" Upon reading it, I really didn't take the time to reflect on the answer. Not until I listened to this video. Thank you!
