Abort all unkindness, unforgiveness, cruelty, hatred, bitterness, and disrespect for life. Don’t let it live in your heart. Human life is an incredible gift. To fail to respect and appreciate it in all its stages and diversity is tragic.
Falling into name calling is mauling our hearts. Don’t put up with put downs. Interrupt them with kindness. “Bless those who curse you.”
Insults inspire retaliatory results. “What goes round comes round.”
If you’re put off by put downs, put up polite, positive posts on your social media pages. Jesus said, “Bless those who curse you.”
If anybody should be peaceful and nonviolent, it should be Christians! Christians are called to be voices of compassion, grace, mercy, healing, reconciliation, and truth spoken with heart-felt love.
