What in the world was redeemable about the Tiger King? He's a liar, a criminal, a manipulator… overall just an aggressive and insane guy who straight up says he wants to murder people. Who could possibly empathize with this guy?
Paul the Apostle, that’s who.
Paul persecuted the Church, jailed Christians, and insulted God.
Aren't we all just as selfish, impatient, and quick to anger as the Tiger King? And even when we're able to control those things it’s not good enough. Our best is never going to be good enough to earn God’s love on its own.
Thankfully it’s not up to us. It’s up to Jesus and His best was good enough… for me, you, and even the Tiger King.
