let's do better

let’s do better… can we?
i was on facebook today
shocker i know
and i read a status a friend wrote
her status brought tears to my eyes
it was convicting, humbling,
and a truth that i felt we all needed today
esp these last few hours of Holy week..

her status reads:

“In light of all I have seen this week, I just wanted to share two thoughts:

As I reflect on the significance of this weekend to me as a Christian, I just wanted to say I’m sorry if someone in the church has harmed you. I’m sorry if something a Christian has said has hurt you. I’m sorry if that person was ever me. I’m sorry on behalf of those people and myself. I’m sorry.

When we pass around memes, silly pictures, and share thoughts that degrade or make fun of in any way, another person’s religion, race, gender, ethnicity and the like, we perpetuate ignorance and fail to progress as a human race. Something simple, meant to be a joke, may be perceived as hurtful to someone, even if “we didn’t mean it.  Let’s think before we click and be mindful of others. This weekend and Spring are a time of rebirth, renewal and new life.”

Let’s do better.”

well said Samantha.
i encourage you all to take time and consider if what you are posting is going to bring Glory to God
is it going to gain souls for the kingdom?
maybe you did not post it, maybe you just “like it”
friend, that’s just the same

let’s focus on others,
their hearts, their pain, their feelings

let’s not always feel we need to make a stand for what we think is right
even if it is biblical truth

let’s love, the way Jesus intended us to
he showed love by sacrificing himself so we may have eternal life.

However, Jesus Christ, the sinless (1 Peter 2:22), eternal Son of God became a man (John 1:1,14) and died to pay our penalty. “God demonstrates His love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). Jesus Christ died on the cross (John 19:31-42), taking the punishment that we deserve (2 Corinthians 5:21). Three days later He rose from the dead (1 Corinthians 15:1-4), proving His victory over sin and death. “In His great mercy He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead” (1 Peter 1:3).
