Soooo Cliche

I will say right off the bat that I don’t expect there to be world peace, or “everyone loving each other,” or anything like that. What I am saying here is the great need for Christians to get their eyes off the temporal divisions and see our “enemies” for what they really are: our mission field. It’s way easier to neatly compartmentalize people as immoral reprobates than to actually get on their level and reach them for good. So, I guess my main point is perhaps an adopted cliche from – uh- the left. Let’s try peace, and instead of being inflammatory, we can try to do what good we can with love that transcends party lines.

    “How do ya like my scraggly beard?” said the grumpy old man who wrote morose book.. See, the old man can’t decide whether his footlong bird-refuge beard is nicer than his nice beaky nose and huge, stern , eyebrows.
