I’m Listening!!

America was once the poster child of free thought and free speech. It seems that the greatest proponents of free speech in our history were those in government, academia, and the press.

What is Your Default Attitude?

If loving your enemies was easy, everyone would do it. Hate, unforgivingness, and retribution is the default attitude of a broken world. Love, forgiveness, and reconciliation is the default attitude of the Kingdom of God. I have decided to follow Jesus not the crowd.

Matthew 5:43-45 NKJV
[43] “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ [44] But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, [45] that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.

Yours on the Journey,
