Should We Be Loving One Another or Wishing Each Other Good Luck?

In a thought provoking post on his Mindfump Blog, Paul Green wrote, “We are bound by modern societal rules to forego all moral objections and wish others good luck in all their endeavors. ”   These words gave me much to ponder.

Yes, definitely, this is the attitude of many sincere people . . . unless, of course, they are spitting out hateful words toward elected political officials with whom they disagree.

Green made it clear that many believe it correct to forego moral objections and wish everyone good luck.

As a follower of Jesus, I am very familiar with His teachings about loving one another, including our enemies.  This is where I disagree with “societal rules.”  In addition,  I am convinced it is good and right to stand up for what we believe, but in a gentle and kind way.  Yelling and throwing sticks and stones doesn’t solve a thing.  If only we could all be able to reason with each other. . .

Published author, mother, grandmother and person who has been through the " dark night in the soul" - I try to make each day a day that I become more grateful for what I have going right in my life instead of falling into the trap of getting hyper-focused on what is wrong... I hope to share some of what has worked for me, and learn how others have managed as well...
