Gosh...I'm so sorry I missed a day of the challenge!
I was tired and had a headache, but it's still inexcusable. (The headache and tiredness was caused by an almost all-night movie binge the night before. That's my confession.)
Sorry, guys n' gals.
I don't talk about politics and stuff, because I don't know politics and stuff.
I don't talk about religion, because I don't do religion.
I talk about Jesus and me because I know Jesus and me. And I know Jesus and me because I talk about Jesus and me.
So why I am being unnecessarily cryptic?
No reason, it's just fun to write. 😀
But the above sentences, cryptic as they might be, have a purpose for today's post.
In the U.S where I live, politics and religion are two of the many polarizing issues.
And you know Americans...
They don't have any qualms telling you exactly what they think and why you should think that way, too.
Oh wait, my bad... Did I say Americans? I meant humans. 😀
Anyway, I don't talk about these issues, not because I avoid them, but because of the aforementioned reasons.
But since we are already talking about them, let me just say:
It is easy - so easy - to have opinions from the outside looking in. All these "senior news correspondents" and something-something analyst on cable news are full of opinions! All the "queen24178" commenters on your Instagram post are full of opinions, too!
As recipients of these opinions, cruel as many of them are, we understand just how much they hurt.
Therefore, when we find ourselves on the other side of the screen, we need to be considerate, humble and gentle.*
As people (dare I say, cuties) for Jesus, it's who we are supposed to be.**
