We (figuratively) stand on street corners and scream to the world all that is wrong with it.
We tell people that we will not stand for this and we will not stand for that.
We lose our voices with the "do nots" of the Bible.
We spend all our time and effort in letting the world know how screwed up and wrong they are.
But I'm not real sure that's how Jesus would have gone about things.
Actually, I'm very sure that's not how he rolled.
We spend so much time screaming to the world...
"You're doing this wrong..."
"You should be doing this..."
"This is not ok..."
But in reality, we should be spending our time and effort on telling the world what we are FOR.
We get so caught up in what we are against or what is wrong with the world,
that they have NO IDEA what we are for.
Check out this video.
This guy could have EASILY and RIGHTLY told this woman what she was doing wrong and done what he was SUPPOSE to do...
However, he took the higher road and did what I believe Jesus would have done...
Make the simple decisions.
The world already knows what we are against...
Let's spend some time letting them know what we are FOR!
It's better that way!
