No, that is not a word I picked up in Alabama or Mississippi. It is instead a time when other very talented folks can write a word or two and I can take a little break. Plus, I find that true ministry is to get everyone involved (as Jesus absolutely did), and help them find their talent to serve. Buy, that said.............
I can't help but offer a few thoughts. Can we just skip the Presidential election and vote in Pope Paul? He is a true servant leader, and when was the last President to be like that? Can we find out the real reason's why terrorists do what they do because it is certainly not for God or religion, that is just an excuse?
What if we really lived out the letters of that bracelet I once wore, WWJD? No problem electing a president who followed that, and certainly terror would be a thing of the past. What Would Jesus Do in 2016 if he were here to walk on this earth?
He would probably say much of what he said before: Love your neighbor as yourself....blessed are the peacemakers....now that you know these things you will be blessed if you do them.
Love not hate, serve not take, life not murder, friendship not backstabbing, humility not pride........these are some things he did last time he was here, maybe we should do the same, and do it with excellence not a bad attitude!
Why? Because that is what Jesus did!
