ALL is such an inclusive word. It levels the playing field and has the gravitational pull to bring people together. ALL states that there are not outliers or segregated circles or hierarchal groupings. ALL includes you. And ALL includes me. ALL includes the people we want it to include. And ALL even includes those people that, well if we were making the decisions, would definitely not include.
ALL includes the lovable and the unloveable.
ALL includes the compassionate and uncompassionate.
ALL includes the genuine and the manipulative.
ALL includes the authentic and the fake.
ALL includes the forgiving and the resentful.
ALL includes the nice and the mean.
ALL includes the servant and the power-hungry.
ALL = ALL
My sin is as bad as your sin, and your sin is as bad as ____________. (Go ahead, place a name in that blank.). ALL have sinned. ALL have fallen short. ALL have missed the mark. ALL have disappointed God. ALL have turned away from God.
And that is why ... you need to repent, today. (And repeat.)
