Something I’ve been wrestling with for a while. I try to be open-minded and loving, but it seems to be harder to be seen as open-minded so I post this challenging question not as a way of being harsh, but merely to show the difficulty of living by your convictions. My hope is always to agree if I can, to disagree agreeably when I can’t and to always be loving. Hopefully that will always shine through.
I know Jesus told us people would hate us and I’m realistic enough to understand that we have sometimes brought it on ourselves. Oh well, love the people who hate you and pray for people who persecute you.
For a creative failure is not an option… It’s a necessity an obligation. If you never fail, you’ll never create anything new.
When I look at the complexity of the world and everything in it, the thought that it all happened by accident seems to require way too much faith. It’s far easier to believe that the universe is the creation of an amazing and superior mind. That mind’s name is Jesus.
