Before The Sun Goes Down

We live in a very divisive world, and Christians, like the rest of the human race, are not immune to its heavy influence. I am seeing fellow believers pitted against each other by politics, science, and lifestyle choices. One voted for Bernie, the other for Cruz. One believes in evolution, the other is a literal seven-day creationist. I am seeing lovers of Christ ripping each other to shreds over homeschooling, breastfeeding, exercise, cremation, clothing, and even Harry Potter.

Stop and listen to me. Aren’t we all sinners? Was Jesus not nailed to a cross, bleeding, for our transgressions? Do we not pray to the same Lord? Do we not see the same beautiful sky every night before we go to sleep? Take a deep breath. Put down your fists. Look at that beautiful sky, and do not be angry when the sun disappears from it tonight.

Ephesians 4:26
