I’m Sorry, What’d You Say?! – Ruling from SCOTUS Brought Out Bad Behavior
Think twice before you speak, because your words and influence will plant the seed of either success or failure in the mind of another.
I’m Right And Your Wrong. Period.
Have you felt like that title is all you have heard since last week? After SCOTUS ruled on the healthcare plan, it seemed as though that was the main theme from every angle. I’m right and you’re not.
I’m not here to weigh in on the topic and choose to keep my political views out of this blog. But, today we focus on people – on relationships – and it is pretty hard to walk away from this moment without saying something.
Treat People The Way You Want To Be Treated
My social media feeds weren’t the only ones blowing up after last Thursday’s ruling. I know you saw similar feeds also on your Facebook and Twitter accounts. Posts, commentary and comic photos stating your opinion of what went down came from both sides of the argument.
What is disheartening is how we treat each other through these moments. Whether you are right or I am right makes no difference in how we should treat each other. Treating others with dignity and respect is what we are all called to do as humans, and in particular for those of us who profess to be followers of Christ.
Our actions are heard louder than non-believers and so you should take extra care in how you chose to voice your opinion.
Have A Little Faith
Last time I checked, the Creator of the Universe had His stuff together. Like, as in never fails. So, what are you squirming about every time something happens that you don’t like or agree with? Have a little faith and start treating your fellow Americans with more kindness and love.
Stop berating the opposing party with such Junior High antics. Think before you Tweet, Speak or Post. Think about who you represent and how you are doing it. What example are you setting?
Maybe, just maybe, if we all got our acts together and started living lives of love, kindness, compassion and mercy we would see the changes we are so ardently looking for in this country.
