According to this passage, the Christian narrative is nothing if it is not about restorative justice.
When we provoke one another in acts of love and good deeds, it is kind of like we are poking one another, challenging one another to hold ourselves accountable to go above and beyond to do these acts of love and good deeds and not just talk about them.
We cannot separate loving our neighbor from loving God. Period.
