Put It Down!

Whatever is keeping you from getting where you want to go, put it down.

Whatever is causing confusion in your home, on your job, or in your community, put it down.

Whatever leads you to think you have a right to take a life, put it down.

Whatever leads you to think you have a right to physically abuse someone else, put it down.

Put down the crack pipe!

Put down the weed!

Put down the cigarette!

Put down the alcohol!

Put down your hand (fist)!

Put down the gun!

Put your ego on the shelf, start listening to those who are wiser than you, and start doing what is right in the sight of God–not you! That is–if you want put down the devil and his evil ways!



I Just Don’t Understand

How on earth can we as human beings disregard the life of another?

How can we maim, disfigure, and kill children and those we say, we once loved?

Why do we need an assault weapon to defend our homes when the truth of the matter is, if someone breaks in while we’re at home, the first shot will (for those with any sense) scare off any others?

Why does any sane person need more than gun in one household?

Are we so insecure within ourselves that we have to prove something to others?

What do we have to prove and why do we need to prove anything to anyone else?

Why would a mother leave two young children alone in a home at night?

Why couldn’t a neighbor be trusted to look after the children?

Are we so wicked that none can trust us to look after children to keep them from harm?

Why can’t fathers take care of their children? After all, the children did not make that decision to be created or born?

Why can’t mothers love and nurture the children they brought into this world?

Why must the media report everything so that everyone will know exactly how to undermine whatever is being planned?

Why can’t we–just love one another–care for one another–be respectful of one another–regard all life as sacred–be mindful of the fact that however we live our lives and how we do it, will determine our fate and what we will receive from others?

“Beloved, let us love one another.” If we love, we won’t hurt, discourage, kill, or disparage others. If we love–we will be loved. Tell someone today that you love them, while you yet have a chance!
