It’s okay to say some things aren’t okay!

Every thought, feeling, desire, and action isn’t okay. Desire without self-control usually runs amuck. It’s okay to say that some things aren’t okay!

We live in a culture where people feel entitled to demand other peoples’ approval of whatever they do. However, doing whatever you feel like doing and then demanding people to approve, is like shooting an arrow into a board, drawing a bullseye around it, and then telling people to applaud you.

If disapproval equals hatred, then love becomes impossible. God cares about people even when He disapproves of their behavior. That’s love!

Every person has veto power over her/his own desires. Not to use your veto is to be continually in tow to your inner foe.

Success is often portrayed as owning and showing off fancy, expensive stuff. However, stuff without joy, love & inner peace isn’t success. It’s just a stuffy lifestyle!

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
