In the U.S., the world… Things are happening.
This past year has been filled with so much to discuss. But arguing over them? Words sting heavy and arguing is certainly no anti-venom. I see on the internet arguing among Believers that breaks my heart. Passion should never yield hate.
It is true that discussion needs to be had. But words need to be lovelier and lighter. They can heal.
It seems on every side of every issue there are passionate feelings that sometimes turn into stinging words. No, wait… it doesn’t seem that way… it IS that way. I’ve seen hateful comments on both sides of everything. Much of the time those come out of the mouths of those who are uneducated or wrongly educated on a topic… they’ve chosen to follow a crowd… with little to no knowledge of why they do so. They are good people making statements and decisions without knowing enough details. It’s easy to do! But lack of education is no excuse for unlovely or prideful comments.
There is something we should all strive to live by. I don’t find it easy sometimes I admit, but I know it is not impossible.
Love. One. Another.
Even in disagreement.
Like them? We are not called to “like” others. Some people are hard to like. I get it. But loving those around us that God created because He created them… that we are called to do. And we can do it.
We can all do it, because we can do ALL things through Christ Jesus.
Walk the journey with me? That would be cool.
