Be moved. Jesus took hate and hostility, the kind like our vengeance, by absorbing it into his own body. He then recycled it into love, mercy, and forgiveness. By his wounds—not his advice and not his theory—Jesus heals all of us.

Go ahead. Lead with your fuming and spewing claims of unfairness. Blast away at why you don’t need the constant abuse you receive from others.

Or…take your place in the life-giving effort that bears the fruit of ideal difference. Some will choose to belittle and complain. Others will prefer to live…abundantly…now…today.

The cross…your cross…is the only winning way to victory. Stay. On. It.

Determine to be recycled through rejection. It isn’t fun and games. It is the gift that keeps on giving.
