He who gives an answer before he hears, It is folly and shame to him.
Jesus taught a “power-under” approach to affecting and infecting our culture rather than a “power-over” approach. He didn’t call us to fight or to subvert others into submitting to our position. His perspective was to love and to serve.
Rather than throwing your hands up in despair and disgust for those who are on the other side of this issue, I would encourage you to take up Jesus’ approach: love others with everything that is within you.
Don’t be rude. Don’t put others down. Don’t mock. Don’t slander.
Just love. And listen.
