Every day I hear a new message of anger and frustration. A new reminder of the hate that is alive and active during this challenging time. Oh how I long for messages of peace. I long to listen to the news in the morning and hear about people coming together in love and support to lift each other up, to value one another above themselves. 1 Peter 3:1-7 focuses on unity and humility between a husband and wife and then in verse 8 Peter declares “Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble.” I strive to follow the first part of this chapter and take daily action steps to love and serve my wife but it’s not often that I take the action step in verse 8. I tell myself that not being part of the problem is enough. But right now, clearly, that is not true. And it never was. If I want to hear messages of love and togetherness then those messages need to start with my actions towards my brothers. Join me.
