The Loving Kind: A Young Adult Community
It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners. –Matthew 9:12-13
Jesus is responding to a group of people who are questioning the company he kept and he points them to a verse from Hosea saying, ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice’.
MERCY from Hosea is also translated as LOVING KINDNESS and it is the most frequently used word to describe the personality and action of God.
Our hope as a group is that we would reflect that…The personality and action of God. That people would ask, “What kind of group is that?”
and the answer would be…The Loving Kind
