Followers of Jesus, as a whole in this country, may not be recognized as being “peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy” (to quote the apostle James). Surely it’s our responsibility in the public square and on twitter as much as it is in our personal relationships.

“On a cold January day, a forty-three-year-old man was sworn in as the chief executive of his country. By his side stood his predecessor, a famous general who, fifteen years earlier, had commanded his nation’s armed forces in a war that resulted in the defeat of Germany. The young leader was raised in the Roman Catholic faith. He spent the next five hours watching parades in his honor and stayed up celebrating until three o’clock in the morning”

Reading this we might think the situation is referring to JFK, but in actuality it’s referring to Adolf Hitler. I encourage everyone to not make assumptions on what we think we know but make informed decisions with every possible bit of knowledge at our disposal so that we carry out our purpose of serving others and serving God!
