Love is an orientation.
I've been reading this book amazed at the depth of knowledge and insights God has given Andrew Marin (check out the Marin foundation here) Andrew's been living in Chicago's boystown to bring the incarnational message of God's transformational love to a people who have been misunderstood and marginalized for generations. God speed Andrew. And I highly recommend this book as a must read for every Christian.
One incident cited in the book is about Billy Graham who was being criticized and questioned about some support he gave to Bill Clinton after the sexual scandel... Billy said, "it's the Holy Spirit's job to convict, God's job to judge and my job to love." Sounds like the gospel truth to me.
Now to live and love.
