There’s Always More to the Story than the Stereotype

More to the Story by Holley Gerth

It’s so easy to smack a label on what we don’t understand.

So simple to say “them” and “us” because it creates a comfortable distance.

So convenient to believe the assumptions because it’s a lot less work than love.

There’s only one problem: Jesus never did it.

He taught us this…

There’s always more to the story than the stereotype.



Tax collector.

Jesus never stopped with the titles slapped on souls. Because we are not the words that describe us. We are the hearts beating desperately inside us, begging for someone to truly see.

Look with eyes of mercy today. Because that’s the way God has always looked at you.
