Day 44: Everybody?

“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people—for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.” ‒ 1 Timothy 2:1-2 (NIV)

A few years ago, my takeaway from one of William’s sermons was “God loves everybody, so should I.” I thought, “Oh, good one! After all, I love my family, my friends, my co-workers. Piece o’ cake—I’m just full of love!” But then a driver cut me off on my way home from church, and I saw a social media post that afternoon that I didn’t agree with (what was she thinking?!?), and Monday was full of, well, Monday kinds of irritations.
