But wait!

I am referring to my previous post.https://wtfaiblog.wordpress.com/2021/01/19/id-love-to/ I was remembering this song from my youth and thought it relevant.

As the song says, I don’t know what to do. I am bombarded by media with what I am supposed to be like and there are experts and “the science” shoving expected behaviors onto my to do list, if I am to be accepted into the “woke” fraternal order. It seems there is an authority that has a supreme dictate which must be adhered to. It sounds a little like fascism to me.

Bound

I have a new approach today. The world is just as it should be and best left alone. If I wish to have an impact, my task is to be a better human. I can’t change myself, as much as I might want to. I would just be moving furniture around the room but the dwelling is the same. I must be transformed, I have zero effective way of affecting this on my own. I am under the care and protection of a Gracious and Loving Father. I have the ultimate example in how I should be in Jesus. I wait before Him and the world will be better for it.

Magnificence

I have read the three most difficult things for humans to do are.

  1. Respond with Love for hate
  2. Include those who are excluded or left out
  3. To admit when we’re wrong

These I do my best to keep these in my awareness and pray that our leaders and those who have the means to inform the masses will too.

Peace be with you!

  1. Your previous post of the song was a perfect, subtle teaser to consider how the lyrics apply today – a classic by the way- meaningful.

    Alas, with humans, history repeats itself. Yes, transformation is key, not just rearranging!! Awesome highlight as well as the three simple suggestions you offered. Particularly love, respond with love to hate❣️❣️❣️

    A beautiful call to faith. To be a better human through Christ and seek the truth not who’s spinning the facts.

    Thought provoking and inspiring post Jeff. Thanks ❤️🤗

    1. I just read a quote by Tolle- “We don’t become good by trying to be good, but by finding the goodness that is already within you and allowing that goodness to emerge.”

      1. Love it! We are all born inherently good…and then life’s burdens place heavy weight on top of that goodness. I like the idea that we can lift the heavy weight and all that has been buried will emerge!
        Have a great Sunday 🙂

    Excellent!

    As Christians we do have a role in changing the world. Christ did call upon us to be salt and light, and those three most difficult things are certainly part of being salt and light.

    It is God who changes souls. When we become prideful, we trying to change others instead of loving, protecting, and helping each other.
