To say the least, the last couple of months have left me boggling at the devolution of our society and what appears to be irrational and irresponsible behavior, for a whole host of reasons. I’m not here to argue who is right or who is wrong, but to simply say – hit ‘PAUSE’. Take a breath. Take time to reflect and consider before speaking, acting, re-acting, and alienating. Consider others, not just yourself. Respect others, before demanding it for yourself. Help fix the problem, instead of being a problem. And look inward, before you point outward. Yes it is a bit cliche, but the old adage still rings true – Two wrongs do NOT make a right.
Take the time to pray. Make the effort to get right with God. Open your heart to others as Christ asks us. Then we might see some progress – and peace.
