I self-identify as human

We have a common identity.
Everybody I see,
Is human like me.

My identity is human. I’m part of the largest community in the world. (Let’s simplify identity and all just be human.)

Science and your DNA identify you as one member of the human race. Enough said.

Bigotry is identity theft. It attempts to rob people of their human identity.

Everyone who reads this has an amazing identity. You’re all people, made in the image of God!

Respectful, peaceful conversation is often more effective than weaponized words. To avoid being verbally cruel we need compassion for those who challenge our opinions.

I identify as human–made in God’s image, but unable to live up to it without Him. To deny anyone’s identity as equally human, is arrogance. Here’s true equality (aligned with humility): “All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.”

Disagreeing with people is a right. Being mean to them isn’t. Don’t let false identities, that divide humanity, fill your heart with hostility. If you can’t be respectful when people disagree with you, you’re kindness challenged.

Unkindness is unnecessary. MLK and Gandhi proved that neither unkindness or violence is needed to improve society. We shouldn’t mistreat any person or any form of human life.

Kindness always matters.
Communicate with kindness.
Disagree with kindness.
Encourage prenatal kindness.

Hey, humanity: Let’s be kind to all members of the human race. I’m always honored to meet a fellow human. Blessings to all!

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
