A bad habit never disappears miraculously. It’s an undo-it-yourself project.
~ Abigail Van Buren (1918–2013)
Because of that obedience, God lifted him high and honored him far beyond anyone or anything, ever, so that all created beings in heaven and on earth—even those long ago dead and buried—will bow in worship before this Jesus Christ, and call out in praise that he is the Master of all, to the glorious honor of God the Father.
~ Philippians 2:9-11
It has been a very painful few weeks in the United States of America. Lots of death, lots of loss, lots of hateful things said. I listened to the President talk about changing the way we speak, the way we treat each other, the way we need to move forward. I heard the choir sing, “Glory Glory Hallelujah.”, I have seen the posts on social media.
Still lots of pain, lots of people who know better. Lots of platitudes, lots of stinging words.
I saw this: on a friends’ page on Facebook the other day.
” Two thousand years ago, Jesus ended the debate on which lives matter. He died for all. ” I still felt the sting.
Ultimately it doesn’t matter whose words sound better, who is right, who is more politically correct. We are all hurting, afraid, tired, scared, done, in shock, and trying to move forward, not on. One person at a time, if we are humble and kind and remember whose light we are called to walk in, we can/will, make a difference. I believe I’ll let Tim McGraw preach today. His words heal, remind, charge us with today’s task, “Always Stay Humble and Kind.”
Always Stay Humble and Kind
Because of Him,
