America, it’s time to act like black lives matter

Insults and hate
And other words
That berate
Won't make
America great. 

When blacks feel like their lives don’t matter in America. Don’t argue with them. Compassionately ask why.

I’ve never heard an African American say: “Only black lives matter.” Have you? I would be offended by an “Only Black Lives Matter” sign, but I’ve never seen one of those.

If you really want to fight evil, don’t allow it in your mind or in your heart. Sometimes a speaker is introduced as “esteemed,” but in the real world, too many people are “disesteemed.”

Imagine what it would be like if people felt about certain flower colors, the way that some do about black skin color. Tomatoes were once considered poisonous, but we got over that false belief. It’s time to get over false beliefs about blacks!

Violence is the weapon of the hopeless. Those with hope brimming in their heart prefer to challenge injustice with love.

Christians need to speak with kindness and the love of Christ, not with insults and accusations. Jesus causes me to love everybody.

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
