Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.
Our Day, replete with all of its bluster and unrest, brings with it an incredible opportunity for the church to be the church. The Church is called by God to be a countercultural/alternative community to the world’s vision/values and ethics/morality. So when the world goes “low” how can the church go “high?” Heres’ a few ways:
The world cancels-the church forgives
The world hates-the church loves
The world despairs-the church hopes
The world demeans-the church encourages
The world fractures-the church unifies
The world traffics in lies-the church traffics in truth
The world creates violence/the church creates peace
Christ followers, we are different, vastly so, so let’s start gracefully displaying who we are so that when people encounter us they will see, and want, a higher way.
