Let’s Make America Kind Again...

That was printed on a hat that I saw in a Chicken Soup for the Soul newsletter that I receive because I have written stories for that publication. I am not a hat person or would buy one and wear it everyday. Just after seeing the hat online, I opened up to this by Max Lucado. I can’t think of a more effective way of making America kind again than by being like Jesus.

“ God rewards those who seek him.  Not those who seek doctrine or religion or systems for creeds.  Many settle for these lesser passions, but the reward goes to those who settle for nothing less than Jesus himself.  And what is that reward?  Nothing short of the heart of Jesus. “And as the spirit of the Lord works within us, we become more like him.” (2 Cor. 3:18TLB).

 Can you think of a greater gift than to be like Jesus?  Christ felt no guilt; God wants to banish yours. Jesus had no bad habits; God wants to remove yours. Jesus had no fear of death; God wants you to be fearless. Jesus had kindness for the diseased and mercy for the rebellious and courage for the challenges. God wants you to have the same...he wants you to be like Jesus.”

 Thank you again, Max Lucado. I, for one, needed to be reminded.
