Today’s lesson is so simple that it cannot be misunderstood:
To error is to act without love. The correction to error is always perfect love.
Punishment teaches that violence is an option and that fear is real. There is no love in this message just as there is no such thing as “tuff love”. There is either love or absence of love.
Punishment, while still the most common response to error, is a tragic error in itself. So we correct those who would punish by extending perfect love.
We are here to remember what perfect love is and to learn how to extend it. To that end, we continue tomorrow and each day after that.
