Dear fellow lovers of Jesus,
Like many of us, I’m feeling a lot weary.
I, too, have so many thoughts on the current political environment. I’m not at a place where I am going to extend those thoughts gracefully and with mercy. Until then, I choose to be quiet on those things in this forum.
Will you try something with me today? Will you be the hands and feet of Jesus?
Instead of spending time posting/spewing political rhetoric from either side, I have a challenge. Use that time instead to extend a tangible kindness. Think outside of politics ourselves….how could we serve or help another?
Gather coats and blankets for the homeless, it looks like it’s going to get really cold.
Make cookies or brownies for a neighbor, use a box mix, nobody cares.
Do a chore for somebody in your house that you know they don’t enjoy doing.
Write a letter to someone you know might be lonely or struggling.
Send somebody a quote that will lift their spirits.
Just. Do. Something. Kind.
If you can’t muster the energy up to do this or just don’t have the inner resources, pray.
Need an idea of how to help? Send me a message! I promise that extending a kindness will also feed your own soul.
This really applies to everyone. I addressed it to Christians because what I have been observing is not what we are about. It is not what Jesus is about. Jesus was not a politician nor did he give any of us the power to determine who He personally selected. Thinking one has been appointed with this knowledge feels a bit arrogant.
Go be kind. Happy Tuesday!
