Can you handle these truth jolts?

It’s better to be shocked by truth than snared by a comfortable untruth. Truth leads to freedom, lies to bondage.

One of the most unused human rights is the right to change your opinion. When someone disagrees with you, it doesn’t prove them wrong. It just proves that they see things differently than you do.

Go small! Do something to encourage one person today.

People are like gravity pulling you into their influence. Choose people who are positive influences. When you’re afraid of the truth, it takes great courage to be honest.

Difficulties, opportunities to gather strength and grow in character, are too often squandered by anger and frustration. Reason obeys logic, but emptions take pride in being illogical.

Weak people lead by heavy-handed authority. Strong people lead by the influence of their character and lifestyle. People who get offended when they’re being held accountable shouldn’t be trusted.

Too many people
Fill their mind
With things

Insecurity lays down the weapons of reason, understanding, and compassion and takes up the weapons of coercion or violence. If it’s inhumane to train animals to be used in combat, perhaps the same applies to people.

It’s time to admit: When freedom enslaved people, if fell far short of true freedom.

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 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 in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
