God never intended God’s boundaries to be less than the whole world. A God Flash

Therefore, none of us have a monopoly on God’s love. We may feel like we do when we look down on someone different than we are, or when we snicker at someone’s misfortune, or when we say, “Thank you, Lord, that I am not like them,”

Or when we say, “It’s too bad they do not believe as we believe.” But woe be unto us whenever we reek of such arrogance! For when we try to restrict God’s grace to ourselves, we cut ourselves off from that very grace.

Why? Pierre Teilhard de Chardin may have said it best: “It is impossible to love Christ without loving others, and it is impossible to love others without moving nearer to Christ.”
