in Beyond Whatever Promos, Relational, Spiritual
I worked the graveyard shift as a desk clerk in suburban Chicago. While the weekend night were often busy late into the night, many nights I had lots of free time. I was confined to a small space in a locked office behind glass. I spoke through a slot below the glass. I exchanged money and passed room keys through that small opening.
Yes, there were lonely, sleepy nights.
Alone I had several options. I watched television. I listened to music. Occasionally I napped. As a newly committed God-follower I spent hours reading my Bible.
There at the desk I spent many hours getting to know God and about God and about our world.
What I Learned
We are need of a change. Beyond “Whatever”. God isn’t changing. Our world is.
A great deal has changed since I was a child. Many things have improved since I was a child. Yet, despite all of the many hard working, kind-hearted people with good intentions our world is not getting better.
We are not more enlightened.
We need a change. We need to work together. We need a revolution of love. We need a revolution of love.
Wouldn’t you like to trust everyone? Wouldn’t like an end of faking & posing, pretension, lying & backstabbing? Wouldn’t you like a hassle-free life.
Wouldn’t you like people to accept you?
Wouldn’t you like people to respect you?
No more using or being used by people!
We need a revolution of love.
The problem is we’re forgetful.
Or, we have become so open-minded that our brains have nearly fallen out.
Sadly, common sense—what everyone knows is true—has become uncommon.
We need a revolution of love
