Heart proximity leads to compassion leads to kindness

Proximity promotes community and compassion. Failure to facilitate heart-to-heart proximity enables isolation. Bring your ear close to hear people’s heart and you’ll see them differently than you did before.

Without a soul goal, life is easily trivialized into maintaining its existence and obtaining lots of stuff. There’s a helpful, hopeful inner voice trying to lead you in a good direction. Follow your conscience.

Insight gives hope and when hope is in sight, life becomes a delight. Where you wind up in life is far more important than how fast you get there.

It’s sad today that people have difficulty talking about political ideas without insulting and demeaning those who disagree. Being unkind when expressing your views, makes it seem like you don’t think they are very strong ideas.

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
