People connections–heart-to-heart

Nobody’s all bad.
Nobody’s all good.
What a mixture
Is personhood!

Be a good surprise today. Be kind to someone who doesn’t expect kindness from you.

There’s no logical reason not to give every person you encounter a warm, friendly greeting. Be logical!

Everyone has some sadness. You’ll never meet a person who couldn’t use a little kindness and encouragement.

Relationships improve when we spend more time communicating heart-to heart and less time pontificating.

Life goes better when people help each other with words and actions, instead of hurting each other with them.

True human connection shifts conversation from the mind to the heart.

To experience life from a different perspective, you don’t need a change in geography–a change in your heart is more effective.

Persistent kindness connects people heart-to-heart. Continual suspicion separates people.

If you’ve never learned to interact with people without experiencing argument and conflict, it’s not too late.

When Jesus said, “Love your enemies,” He didn’t mean to refuse to patiently listen to people you disagree with.

When you obey Jesus and “love your enemies” by connecting heart-to-heart, you see that they’re a lot like you.

There’s no reason to withhold kindness from any human being. Jesus said: “Bless those who curse you.”

Sometimes encouragement doesn’t just happen. Sometimes you need to search for it.

The most complicated object in the universe is the human neck-top computer (brain). Too often we let it “sleep” thru out the day.

If we don’t learn to make room for the living Jesus in our daily life, the elephant in the room is that we’re trusting self more than Him.

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
