Ohh, wow how perfect! Thank you!
In my opinion, that does not mean that you don't speak out and stand up for your beliefs though. Yes, watch what you say and say it as Jesus would in love, but I have been especially upset by Christians "preaching" that other Christians shouldn't speak out. Why is there a double standard even by so called Christians against other Christians? We are supposed to spread Jesus' message. I don't think that sharing my beliefs is wrong when I have to see and read everything the secular world and media has to say. Aren't we as Christians still free? Sorry but I don't have a lot of respect for Christians who are afraid to say what they believe for fear of stepping on some other toes and losing "followers". :-(
Amen!!! I knew your "political post" wouldn't really focus on politics. I love this verse. My husband actually has this scripture reference tattooed on his arm. :)
Yes, I completely agree. I value other's opinion and welcome them because if we don't talk about it, how will we make informed decisions? But, when you start being nasty (really nasty in some cases) I not only stop listening to you, but I lose respect for you. And that's just sad!
Right?!? I'm so thankful election season is over. I was so bummed to see so many Christian friends (irl & online!) become so hateful and judgmental about who they or others are voting for. What comes out of your mouth is the overflow of your heart...
Amen!! Everyone needs to remember to be supportive of others and not destructive.
i love you Megan.you know what, we know what we believe. i stand strong for my beliefs but when we are only quoting versus to let unbelievers know that they are sinners everyday to make ourselves feel better i am so against it. the only way i can show others why i follow Jesus Christ is to show others love. non-believers do not want to hear Christians quoting scripture about how they are going to hell if they don't repent, how gays are sinners, etc. we are to preach Gods love every single day. when we do that we draw non-believers in and then we can start quoting scripture.people who use the bible to defend the way they treat non-believers is sad. Jesus never turned away a non-believer by talking about how horrible they were. why can't we as Christians do the same? why? sorry about this, but i've been feeling so strongely about this lately and i just had to say something.ok, bye! love ya!
eeeeeek, facebook was scary these last few days! woof. LOVE this reminder, sweet friend! xoxo
Amen sister! I think everyone needs the reminder that we are all in this together as Americans and we need to realize complaining about things are using offensive language to attack other people is not a good way to unify.Thanks for sharing this!
Great reminder, my friend!!
love this...I'm all for people having different opinions but all the hatred & rudeness is just ridiculous!
This is so great, Meg! I love how you're not saying Christians shouldn't have Bible-based opinions.. We should! And be vocal about them! It's the WAY we voice our beliefs that's key. We can state them firmly AND humbly.. We can still glorify God, even during a presidential election. Shocking, I know. :)) Loved this!!!!
yes to this. love it.
New follower here! What a great reminder. Wishing some of my fellow Christians would follow this advice the past few weeks.
Thanks for the uplifting thoughts this morning. I followed over from my blog (that has the blogher posts.) I look forward to following your blog.
I love this bible verse! Thanks for sharing :]
