Sometimes people don’t live up to the standards we have set for ourselves and them. Do we love them any less for that? We try not to do that, but it is somewhat inevitable. The example of the Son of Man prevails.
He suggests that we love others as we love ourselves, but what if they can’t live up to what we have set for ourselves? We are only human, but we can still try to live up to the standards of the Son of Man. The incarnation of the divine into the human should not discourage us.
So we say, “Thy will be done.” Sometimes that hurts…a little.
