There are quite a few people living contradictory lives. Some want to eliminate the use of fossil fuels while clinging to their modern conveniences. Others claim to know Christ, yet resort to such juvenile behavior as harassing members of the LGBT community.
The next time you make New Year’s resolutions, may I suggest you add prioritizing to the list? If you are committed to a cause, then commit. Do not take the high road only when it is convenient for you. How long do you think you would be employed if you decided to only work when it suited you?
I have heard dozens of people complaining about our homeless citizens. How many of these gripers have tried to understand them? Did you know that most of them didn’t choose to be homeless?
I am pleased that the city of Spokane is taking steps to alleviated this situation. So are a few churches. What have you done for them? The next time you buy hamburgers, get a few extra and give them away. Try greeting the less fortunate rather than looking the other way. The only proper place for divas is in an opera.
