I no longer call you slaves, because a master doesn’t confide in his slaves. Now you are my friends, since I have told you everything the Father told me. You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name. This is my command: Love each other. (John 15:15-17)

Relate: What if I was someone else? It is a bit of a daydream that I fall back on every now and then. I don’t mean by it, what if I was Justin Bieber or Derek Jeter or anything like that. I mean, what if I was born to a different time? What it I was raised in another culture speaking another language? How would my life be different, my worldview be different, if I were born in Cambodia instead of America? How would I have grown if I was the third of three kids instead of the second of eight? What if I was born into staggering wealth and affluence? What if I was born to a family that had to walk three miles every day just to get clean water? Instead of being 5’10” what if I was 6’10” or 4’10”, how would that change my outlook on life?
