The right (respite) to be kind

The first step to inner peace is to take a respite from your anxiety and anger. Then exercise your right to be kind.

It’s good to take a respite from our own opinions and attend to the voice of conscience. If we listen to it, it will help us be kinder.

To believe that society has no preconceived notions about people is unconscious bias. Unconscious bias is tricky. It secretly twists how we see things and distorts reality.

Take a respite
From words that rile.
Rest a bit
And smile awhile.

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
