And this is [God’s] commandment, that we should believe in the name of [God’s] Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as [God] has commanded us. All who obey [God’s] commandments abide in him, and he abides in them. And by this we know that he abides in us, by the Spirit that he has given us.

It’s the triple-dog dare. It’s been out there for literally thousands of years and we (humanity) still doesn’t get and can’t seem to do it. Love God, believe in Jesus, love each other. That is God’s dare.
Every major religion on earth has some form of the Golden Rule, to love your neighbor as yourself, as part of their basic understanding of how to live. It’s the compassion dare, and we have failed to take a running start at it. But not with you, you can change all that and accept the dare. Do the dare, I wonder what the world’s reaction will be; I wonder what God’s reaction will be.
