Words of the Week – The Lord’s Bottom Line

We live in a confused world. You have to be careful what you say to everyone, because everyone is ready to attack you for what you just said. Huh? Yep!

It’s a world full of camps and you don’t choose which one you belong to either — it’s chosen for you based on what you say, believe, think, act, etc.

You think the man should be head of the household… you are a male *@!#%*! You are a caveman! The gay guy that works in accounting… what? First of all, he is a she! Her name is “Ivory!” OMG, are you a bigot?! So insensitive!

All I did was hug Suzy, after all she had been through recently and now Jen told human resources I was groping her inappropriately…

How do you navigate in a world that is quickly changing… where people don’t identify as male or female… where your child’s best friend’s parents are the same gender… where human interaction is easily misinterpreted… where political views polarize and divide… where the color of your skin still determines how people treat you?

Well, when all else fails, just treat people the way you would want to be treated. “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.” – John 15:12

“Do to others as you would have them do to you.” – Luke 6:31

“If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all.” – Romans 12:18

You don’t have to agree. You might not understand. But you can show love, because God shows us love every day of our lives.
