Serve like you mean it: Why it’s so challenging

Dear Son, we talked about the obvious, common, and glaring Christian faults – the stereotypical definition by which non-Christians view the Christian world (this sentence is a perfect example of my own stereotype).

This means people like me, a quiet, open-minded Christian who doesn’t profess faith and love with words, are labeled and grouped in without consideration.

Labeled the same way gays, lesbians, bi-sexuals and transgenders are stereotypically labeled – without consideration.

Two wrongs do not make a right.

We talked about how those who label are guilty of the very thing they despise – labeling.

Is there an antidote?

Serve like you mean it is done through our observable behaviors and the first victory is over self. The second ministry is won at home, in the kitchen, the garage, the hallways of our dwelling.
