I’ll be preaching a sermon about this soon, but have been thinking about it beyond sermon preparation. What will we be in 2019?
- Will we be the people who chant “Lock him up” at his political rivals’ rallies?
- Will we be the people who take advantage of those who work for us by remunerating them what we can get away with rather than what they deserve?
- Will we make assumptions about people based on their skin color or gender or age?
My hope is that we will be the ones who elect candidates because we are inspired and not because we are demoralized. My hope is that we will be generous towards every service person who takes care of us. My hope is that we will see strangers through the eyes of Christ.
That’s all I ask in this new year.
