    “It is not loving to impose our own grid onto others. We need to understand their situation and their needs accurately, and this comes from listening to them, not coming in with our own assumptions.”

    We need to gird ourselves with the grid of the Word of God. Please impose that grid on us Lord. May the words of Psalm 19 be constantly on our mind.

    What a beautiful poetic statement. I think this also touches upon the subject of consent, respect and acceptance as well. I think kindness and understanding is very attractive to see in a person.
