2 thoughts & some verse about blaming & unkindness

You don’t have to approve of things you disagree with and you don’t have to be unkind either. Instead, be honest yet compassionate.

Unkind words 
Go in circles.
They return and
Bring unkindness
To the one
Who spoke them.
It's easy to be 
A Pharisee,
To see wrong in others
But miss it in me.
It's easy to be
A Sadducee,
To use religion
But deny it's reality.
If you take the blame,
You can change your game.
If you pass it on,
You're hope is gone.

Blaming others is much easier than improving yourself (but it really doesn’t help much).

People say, "Follow your heart." 
The Bible says,
"The heart is desperately wicked."
To avoid wickedness,
Follow the Holy Spirit instead.

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
