Be the Change

We like to consider ourselves progressive, but we sure keep making the same old mistakes over and over again. When will we learn?

The writer of Ecclesiastes says that there is nothing new under the sun. “Whatever is has already been, and what will be has been before; and God will call the past to account.” (verse 1:9)

How much more foolish is it for us to continue committing the same foolish mistakes spawned by hatred, pride, selfishness and ignorance when we can clearly see what those sins have cost civilizations over the past thousands of years?

Humility. Kindness. Love. Forgiveness.

These are the things we need. Not more laws, more division, more destruction, more self-righteous condemnation.

Have you had enough? If so, be the change you want to see in the world. (Thank you for that quote, Mr. Gandhi.)
