The worst place to build a wall

The worst place to build a wall is in your heart. It’s easy to focus on arguing with people and miss seeing their creativity, their uniqueness, and their inner beauty. It’s okay to disagree with people but there is no reason to be unkind to them

The heavens declare the glory of God, but humans are actually made in His image. To neglect to see the image of God in the people you encounter is to confuse the extraordinary with the ordinary. 

Human approval isn’t an accurate measure of ethical behavior. Do what’s right, not what’s popular. True love doesn’t just passively approve of people’s and organizations’ behaviors. It challenges them to be better than they are.

When we rationalize and excuse mistreating human life in any stage or of any race, we embrace injustice. Prenatal capital punishment executes the innocent. Here’s a poem I wrote:

Prenatal care is unfair.
Some get care.
Others they tear
In pieces beyond repair.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
