I'm hoping that you all have a great week. With all the crap going on in this world, we can still find the good in it. Namely, the good we can find in people we meet everyday. We have a chance to make this world a better place when we practice being kind to others. Even the one's who are stinkers.
We should make forgiveness the first place we go to when someone does us wrong. However, they're some things that are unforgivable. I'm not talking about that. I'm talking about the easy "no brainer" kind. By forgiving others we have the power, they don't. Let go of hate, because it will only eat you up inside.
Sometimes on social media we tend to want to "pile on" when someone is in trouble. Some things are good humored and innocent and others aren't so innocent. Let's stop wishing people ill. Let's hope they learn their lessons when agencies and law enforcement catch them. If they're guilty of a crime, let's hope they suffer the consequences. But in the long run, let's do unto others as we would have done to us.
I'm the first to say that I'm one of those "pile on people." I hope to change that. Let's be civilized and gracious and kind. These are principals God has set forth for us to live by. To love one another. I'm not saying it's easy to do, because I struggle with it everyday. It can be done.
We're all trying to get along in this world and the ultimate end we will all experience is death. So let's live each day as if it's our last and hope that our legacy shows us to have been on the right (or correct) side of history. That doesn't mean not to fight like heck for what we believe in, but to do it in such a way as to make a lasting impression on society.
