Children are listening. What are they being taught?

I have remained silent for a while now.  Not for lack of, but rather

Too many thoughts; too many things to say.

Too many things happening inside me and in the world around me.

 

It is highly likely that I will have more to say at a later date.

But for now, just this:

 

Love your neighbor.  Love your enemies.  Love one another.

Do justice.  Love mercy.  Walk humbly with your God.

If you must hate something, hate injustice in all its forms.

 

Children will listen to our words and observe our actions.

Carefully consider what they may be learning.

Until next time.
