Be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. Try always to be led along together by the Holy Spirit and so be at peace with one another.
—Ephesians 4:2-3 (TLB)
I think the world has too many me-first, look-at-me, insecure rowdy types. We need more of the humble, gentle souls who react to conflict with love and patients.
We need a society of givers and servers, we need our leaders to be selfless and honest, and we need more compassion and a lot less contempt for each other.
Can we agree that cruelty and hostility towards others only leads to more tension, conflict, brutality, and bitterness?
If we learn to be humble and kind to each other, our societies would be more peaceful. Our children would be more compassionate, our corporations would have more ethical governance, and healthcare would probably be a human right, not a system of financial greed.
I’m here to tell you that it isn’t Donald Trump, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Facebook, nor Twitter that’s splitting us apart, it’s our lack of empathy that’s causing hatred towards others, terrorism, genocide, and war.
If you want it to end, start by having a self-reconning. Sure-up your moral shortcomings, and let your actions (of love) speak louder than words.
