Being Gracious (short post)
Unrelatedly, as I write this, the Zeo Rangers just teamed up with Alien Rangers (the first time Power Rangers could adapt the traditional team up from the Sentai) to fight a gear and a purse monster. Good ol tuesday morning’s on the bus. Onto the post proper.
My really cool cousin posted the scripture up-top the other day. It’s the tone I’m hoping to achieve with my post today, and its a tone I want others to emulate. Heck, it’s something I needed to see – and to be honest, it’s something I need to show to others as well.
What’s bringing this on? A couple of things, but mostly the tragedy in Florida last week. In the aftermath, people started saying harsh things across the board. Which isn’t surprising, it’s just unfortunate.
There need to be some tough conversations about guns control down there, cause clearly something isn’t working (at least in my opinion). And with tough conversations come some tough statements. But with those conversations, we don’t need to attack the other person to prove our point. It doesn’t need to be “well, you support abortion, so what you say about guns holds no water” (that’s a different talk altogether). We can still be gracious while saying tough things, but I’d argue we need to check our intent and our delivery method.
