Friday, I found myself sitting in a coffeehouse. Ok it was a Panera. It was just before lunch, when Panera kick you off their wireless, so started writing this, hopefully to get done in 12 minutes. I didn’t.
Anyway, I had to throw ear goggle on as the women behind me were bitching and complaining about everything in their lives. Lucky there was a good bit of Goth being played on KEXP.org. Because they talked loud enough, to hear everything they said, I know they consider themselves Christians. However they had nothing nice to say about anyone in their lives. Is that how Jesus lived? Is that what Jesus preached? I also consider myself a Christian, and yes this is complaining about another person (or 2). But I’m only bringing this all up, because I hope that each of you consider Christ’s teachings in your lives. Whether or not you are a Christian. Love thy neighbor as thyself. He lived love. He was love – and for me, he is love. Please stop passing judgement on others. For one thing it makes you angry, and does nothing to hurt the other person, unless you act on it and physically try to change their lives negatively.
Lastly, if you think you’re a Christian, live like it. Do it in public. Love others. This means being kind.
