It takes courage to be fair & to recognize injustice.

It’s easy to spot unfairness when it’s against you (or people you care about) — harder when it’s against people you don’t like. Often it’s easier to see what your mind projects, instead of seeing what is really there. Then unawareness of injustice often leads to the assumption of fairness. Persistence and determination cause many problems if you’re headed in the wrong direction.

It’s difficult to decide who’s right, if we won’t openly and honestly examine both sides of an argument. However, it takes courage to search for truth that makes you uncomfortable and/or contradicts your point of view.

Just because the world isn’t fair, is no reason for you not to try to be fair. It’s amazing there is so much evil in the world, when almost everybody thinks they are a “good person.” The more you align with the kingdom of God, the less you will be at home with the governments of this world.

Fun without meaning and purpose is meaningless distraction. Let Jesus give you meaning. The living Jesus can’t be institutionalized. If Jesus isn’t allowed to be the literal Head of a gathering of His body, the Bible gives no other role for Him to fulfill. The belief in the risen Jesus shouldn’t be limited to 2,000 years ago. Christ-followers need the leadership of risen Jesus, just as much today.

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
