E-quality4K means: Everyone qualifies for kindness. If we won’t treat everyone as our equal, how can we complain when we’re mistreated? Equality’s easily proclaimed, but it takes humility to treat everybody as your equal.
If inferiority exists, it’s not based on appearance, but on disrespect for others. I admire people who are equally kind to everybody. Equality doesn’t mean everybody being alike, but everyone being equally valued.
Equality isn’t an attitude of violence or a threat to American society. Equality is “radical ideology” that was written into the American Declaration of Independence. The Bible is even more radical by going beyond equality. It says: “in humility value others above yourselves.” Without the “we,” “we the people” are divisive and hostile.
America was founded by declaring equality as “self-evident,” but making it elusive. When police kill someone before he’s tried, “liberty and justice for all” is denied. Unsubstantiated claims are un-American and violate, “innocent until proven guilty.” To look down on people is to renounce the American idea of “self-evident” equality.
Before God we’re all equally flawed people. Let’s show mercy and kindness to everyone. If you won’t resist evil in your own heart, you can’t overcome it anywhere else. If you won’t overcome negativity in the words you hear, read, and say, you won’t overcome it in your lifestyle. Open your heart to moments of insight and “aha” changes in your perspective.
You can tell how much people love God by how much kindness and compassion they show people. Christians should be Spirit-led and overflowing with the fruit of the Spirit, not spiritually dead. Repentance is to align your lifestyle with God, not with your feelings and desires.
Churches have failed to unite, but individual Christ-followers have heart connection. All genuine Christ-followers are united. The same Jesus lives in each of us. Therefore, we diverse Christ-followers don’t have to achieve unity. We just need to recognize that the living Jesus in each other.
Mountains are a chance to climb to new heights and view life from a higher perspective. However, merely projecting what you want without project-ing (working to make it happen) does little. It takes effort to improve yourself or your circumstances; none to deteriorate.
When the risen Jesus changes your life, He doesn’t create illusions; He dispels them. A managed mind, fine tuned to the voice of the living Jesus, makes life amazing!
Are you right with God? Asking for my friend, Jesus. I love listening to and talking with Jesus. Just praying . . .
