This morning as I was driving in to work I was listening to the “Mockingbird” album by Derek Webb(great stuff if you have yet to pick it up). On this amazing album there is a song called My Enemies Are Men Like Me that is just amazing and i have listened to it countless times… This morning as i listened to it, a particular part of the song stuck out to me…
“peace by way of war is like purity by way of fornication
it’s like telling someone murder is wrong and then showing them by way of execution”
These lyrics made me think about how I am treating other folks… how i am loving them… or not loving them for that matter.
Do i tell people they matter to me and then not give them the time of day?
Do i tell people Jesus loves them and then “show it” by judging them?
Do i tell them Jesus heals and then live like i don’t believe i can be “fixed’?
Man… life is such a process… i am glad i’m not walking it alone!
