So I don’t get it. Why purposely be mean? Purposely ridicule or criticize or diminish another human being? Why add to an already difficult life – because truly, none or our lives are easy.
I’d love to write an uplifting post, but I’m tired tonight. And I just don’t get it.
What is the reason for putting down someone else for what they wear? That they made a mistake, that they looked at you the wrong way, that they breathed?
Okay, someone out there is saying that it is important to set others straight, to express your needs, etc. Whatever it is…it is just an excuse to be mean, to be selfish, and to deny your own issues. (Trust me – if you think you are right, you probably aren’t.)
Live generously – live Grace-filled. For the One who created you, lives generously – so why can’t you? (And that One has a lot more to worry about and responsibility than you!)
Gracious God – Help us not waste our few moments that we have to breathe, by seeding more negativity and shame in this world. Help us use these moments to life a generous life – see ourselves and others through Grace-filled eyes.
