I grew up with the Red Letter Bible, the Bible that highlighted the words of Jesus. And I’ve thought about that a lot, too. This is the Jesus who said, “Love your enemies,” “Do good to those who hate you,” “Bless those who curse you,” “Pray for those who treat you badly.” He also said, “Everyone who makes themselves important will be made humbled, but everyone who makes themselves humble will be made important.” He said, “Whoever wants to be your leader, must be your servant.” And Jesus said, “It’s the sick people who need a doctor, not those who are healthy, for I did not come to invite good people, but to invite sinners.” You know, those words used to be easier to live by before I came to congress, where fighting for leadership and soundbites and making the evening news is common practice around here.
