Christian Response to the News and Social Media in 2017

15But if you bite and devour one another, beware lest you be consumed by one another!        (Gal. 5:15)

  • Walking in humility impacts the quality of one’s marriage and family culture as well as how their children will approach conflict and carry their hearts in their future.
  • As peacemakers, we are to seek to bring peace and not stoke the flames of fiery arguments. We must put biblical conviction above our political opinions and arguments.

9Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. (Mt. 5:9)

  1. As believers, we must preserve the bond of peace in spirit of unity. We must be able to disagree with a spirit of grace that respects and values the dignity of people who have different views.
  2. If we respond with anger, then our relationships will be injured, causing us unnecessary pain.
    How we respond when we are mistreated or when we disagree is foundational to our spiritual life.

A clip from “Beautified by Humility in an Age of Anger”

 

1I beseech you to walk worthy of the calling…2with all lowliness and gentleness3endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. (Eph. 4:1-3)
