The link below is to a blog that I follow regularly. The author’s name is Susan Irene Fox and she describes herself as a fairly new Christian. I like what she writes, but this morning her post struck me as exactly what I’ve been thinking and praying about lately. There is so much judgement in society from everyone about everything. It seems like in our world of instant media and communication, people have forgotten some of the basics of human respect for one another. There seems to be an especially ugly component between some very vocal Christians and non-Christians. Both sides think they are right and don’t really listen to the other side at all. The result of this is that Christians have been generalized into this stereotypical harsh, judgemental, intolerant people that all think and believe the same things regarding societal issues of today. I’ve chafed under this stereotype because it isn’t who I am or who I believe Jesus has called me to be. Like I said above, Susan’s post this morning seemed to express exactly what I’ve been thinking, praying and studying about lately. I asked if she would mind if I posted a link to her post on my blog and she was happy to comply. I hope it is a blessing to you as it was to me.
Thanks for following my blog and I hope you will follow Susan’s as well. She has some really good things to say and to inspire us as we follow Jesus.
