The writer of Leviticus calls you, belonging to the community, to love your neighbour as yourself because you are to be holy.
Paul, in Corinthians, says to you, ‘Don’t waste your time boasting about human achievements; you are God’s temple and the Holy Spirit is within you. You belong to God!’
‘OK,’ says Matthew, ‘this means you love even your enemies; do crazy things to take away their prejudices and their alienating certainties. Be perfect as the God of Jesus is perfect—a perfect lover.
Lover, be open, be vulnerable, be moved by the other. Be aware. Respond.
