Gauges help us understand if anything is in need of repair. Jesus showed the disciples that love is the gauge that shows the way forward. He didn’t use fear or shame to convince the disciples of what they should do. Instead, He Modeled it for them in the way that He loved. Likewise, Jesus calls each one of us to the same kind of love. Love is the Metric.
As we go into the unknown of 2021, we want our directions to come from Jesus and the Holy Spirit. We know where we are going because we are following Jesus.
