Hot Topics... Your Best Response: Peace
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.
Matthew 5:9 (NIV)
When someone hates your viewpoint, don't share it. Instead, pursue interests in common.
When someone hates the color of your skin, reveal the heart beneath it, if you can.
When someone hates your virtues and values, shake the dust from your feet and move forward.
When Christians hate those different from them, correct your kin and continue to love.
When Christians hate to leave their comfort zones, uplift your kin and lead a revival.
When hotheads spew lava like volcanoes, release God's river of living water.
When scoffers try to make you debate them, refuse the invitation. Turn away.
In conclusion, apply the Mind of Christ to hot topics. Don't act like the world, because it's not yours. He is. Therefore, study the Bible to know Him.
What you don't know can certainly harm you. Whom you must know will certainly save you.
When you bring peace to hot situations, you can certainly help to save others.
