As I go out to pick up my newspaper I see my neighbors’ two sons playing at football. I say “playing at” because it’s one on one. One boy kicks the ball high in the air. Then his brother grabs the ball and runs. The kicker chases after his brother, tackles him and down they go. Back and forth, taking turns being the kicker. They notice me and wave. Good kids! I’m sure they have their disagreements, as brothers often do, but overall they seem to get along well. Brothers who care about each other have each other’s backs. They may have their own fights, but the one who tries to harm his brother had better think twice. According to our Savior, all are our brothers and sisters, and even when we disagree, we are to love and care about them. Only through his grace!
