So see if you can fill in the blanks with me...
The radio program I heard was a _______ (liberal / conservative / moderate) style show, where the talk show host belittled people from the _______ (liberal / conservative / moderate) background.So how did you do?
Did you guess right?
I know this is theme in my posts as of late, but have you ever noticed how easy it is for us to resort to becoming by belittling someone who might think differently than we do? People will go great lengths to do this - devoting everything from airtime to web sites against others - and in many ways technology has become a sneaky way to go about it.
Maybe because it's easier to say divisive stuff from afar than explore healthy conversation together... which boggles my mind, and yet that seems to be the easy way out for many.
Which I obviously must walk a careful line here even as I talk about "them."
Personally I like and prefer the Narrow Road... it's less traveled and requires courage to walk, but thankfully Jesus left His bloodied footprints and Holy Spirit as a guide. Today I dare you to join in on the journey of becoming a Christ-follower in this area... reconcile with all - from those who deserve it to those (in your mind) who don't) - just as He has offered to reconcile with you.
Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. (Ephesians 4:31)
