parameters of compassion

"As Christians living in the Spirit, we're called to pass on the tenderness of God. The parameters of our compassion extend beyond those who opt for our lifestyle, favor our existence, or make us feel good. Charges of elitism are dropped for the lack of evidence. Peace and reconciliation for all, without exception--even for moral failures--is the radical lifestyle of Christians living in the wisdom of accepted tenderness." - Brennan Manning, The Wisdom of Tenderness
