Sometimes, I admit, I am part of the crowd. I am the one who thinks the other person cannot possibly change. Like ‘everyone,’ I harden my heart to the possibility of conversion for others. I have to remind myself never to close my heart to anyone. If you run across a ‘chief of sinners,’ who are you to condemn him, if God is waiting to welcome him?
