Can we just stop spreading the hate? Stop sharing things that only result in emotional responses that are usually mean and ugly? Stop encouraging the media…who we know are so unbiased and always tells the truth?
Can we stop?
Can we stop judging before we have all the facts? Stop having to get that last word in…just because we know it all? Stop being an “expert”?
Can we wait for truth? Can we love with the love Jesus has? Can we be colorblind and just love those who are hurt, grieving, have full time jobs, lost, mean, filthy, on drugs, liars, cheaters, full of hate, attend church, claim to be better than what spews out of their mouths, angry, don’t attend church, full of judgement, killers, haters?
Can we turn the other cheek? A thousand times? A thousand times again? Forgive? Encourage? Lift up? Praise? Allow for accountability? Support? Listen? Feel?
It’s so easy to press that “share” button and not think about what the consequences are. I have been guilty of doing it too. But I have to stop. It’s enough. It’s ugly. It’s not me.
Romans 12:2 “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is GOOD and ACCEPTABLE and PERFECT.
