Measuring is a part of life. We measure by education, wealth, time, intelligence, and achievements and accomplishments. We measure others up and they measure us. In this environment it can be easy to believe God measures us before we will be acceptable or useful. In Christ, we are loved beyond all measure. A love that is moving in this world in ways that may not fit into our religious or rational systems of measurement. When we focus on the vessels we limit God, but when we turn our eyes and hearts to God we will break open and overflow with God's limitless and transforming love.
"Intense love does not measure, it just gives." -- Mother Teresa
