I’ve been writing about rampant judgment in our communities since we found ourselves in these circumstances we’re now. Far from being humanitarian, many of us have turned to attack one another as we react to fear of death enhanced by mass hysteria.
Some even say that anyone who does not comply with the new rules should be denied help if they become sick. And this, my friends, is how we become so blinded by our self-righteousness that we start doing what’s evil in the name of doing what’s good.
We have to be very, very careful at all times, but these times are particular treacherous. There are many trials we are facing, but the main one is our ability to love one another.
When so many people start preaching violence, neglect and exclusion as means to do what is good or build a peaceful community, the darkness of this world is in full effect.
We are not loving one another by keeping silent to avoid conflict, when our hearts feel strongly against what is being said or done. We can, and should, show our love by speaking peacefully and firmly as we assert our values founded on Love.
We don’t pick sides, but we must take a stand. Love is our stand.
We are not called to oppress, but to speak up for Love, forgiveness, compassion, peace – and this not at the expense of others.
We don’t have to speak against anything or anyone. Let’s raise our voices to speak only about the Love that can unite us and not join any other conversation that is focused on dividing us.
