Today is Tuesday. Today, I went back to work. Today, I’m just going to say something because I have had enough. If you call yourself a follower of Jesus and you treat people like shit and compassion is a sign of weakness for you, I think you got your example definitely mixed up with someone else.
I’d recommend a good heart check and I don’t mean physical.
Are you loving the unlovely? Are you a voice for the poor and suffering? Do you believe others should get second chances? Are you forgiving and understanding? Are you quick to lift up and encourage instead of attacking and putting down. Is your freaking gun more important than thousands of kids going to bed hungry? Is truth an inconvenience?
Is punishment your answer instead of restoration and helping to fix the problem?
Love IS the example; anything else is a sham. 1 Corinthians 13:1-7
