Disagree with kindness — be your brain’s bouncer

Even when people disagree with you, you can still celebrate that they were created in God’s image. To exchange compassion, collaboration, and cooperation for name calling, is to create unnecessary conflict and cast away common sense.

Concern and compassion are more persuasive than arguments and put downs. Try it and see. The quality of your conversation reveals the quality of your life.

Kind words confuse hostile people. (Try it & see.)

Be your brain’s bouncer. Begin to boot out beguiling and belligerent brainwaves. To be great, we need to step away from hate.

Our feelings and thoughts are frequently false. To identify yourself by your feelings and your own thinking is often misleading. It’s better to find and face the facts.

Leaders in a great nation don’t call people “deplorable” or “human scum,” like American leaders have done. We need leaders with the courage to be kind to those who disagree with them.

For a handbook on kindness, search for: Off the RACE Track–From Color-Blind to Color-Kind. Thank you.

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 co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We 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 called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
