A high-water mark is the
maximum rise of a body of water over land. In the world of high finance,
this term is used to refer to the highest value reached by an investment fund. But
in the pursuit of morality, the high-water mark is found in the words and
actions of Jesus.
The high-water mark of
morality isn’t loving those who love you, but learning to love those who hate
you. This high-water mark was first expressed by Christ when he said, “Love
your enemies,” and it was first lived out by Jesus when He went to the cross
to give His life for every sinner who, by their sins, made themselves the enemy
The only way to ever rise
to the level of God’s high-water mark of morality is by turning to Jesus. He
alone has made the way for you to follow, and only He can provide you and me
with the love necessary to walk in it.
heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I
say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you!”
