People are the Most Important

We are in the relationship business. From the beginning God created us for relationship. Jesus became man to build relationships with us. He had compassion on the people. Everywhere he went he clashed with the Temple elite because he put people ahead of the rules.
Some people are easy to love and these are probably the ones we hang out with. Some are downright ornery and get under our skin. We want them to disappear.
Some others are rejected by society. What barriers keep us from loving these folks? However we feel about these individuals, remember God loves each of them.
Who are the people Jesus misses most? Can we love enough to invest in their lives? Are we willing to risk being hurt when we connect with people?
Do we love our neighbor as much as ourselves?
