​Interpreting someone else’s situation and culture through our own lenses – even with the best of intentions – thwarts mutual esteem and understanding. 

In contrast, the Great Commission means going and entering into very different realities – where people are very different than us. Few do it.

Jesus bids us “go” with a fierce love that takes us outside our own limited perspectives.

Only then can we truly go embrace “others” as brothers in Him.
