A Quick Thought…

I was reading through the news feed this morning and saw the latest headlines of violence, mistrust, and hatred that permeate our world today. I don’t know about you, my fellow writers, but I want my writing to help end these problems and not just call attention to them. 

The world is full of problems. Hatred, bigotry, poverty, war, death…the list goes on and on. Countless individuals, whose intentions are not in question, have attempted to right one or more of these wrongs. Charities, government programs, education, emphasis on tolerance, and yet the world’s problems persist and even continue to get worse. 

The real issue is that each and every one of us has a heart problem.  We are selfish. We focus on our own wants and desires and forsake our faith in Jesus Christ. We value our own lives and pleasures over the lives and needs of others. James 4:1-3.

Consider the Ten Commandments. The first five deal with our relationship with God and the second five deal with our relationship with others. 

“One of them, a lawyer, asked Him [Jesus] a question, testing Him, “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” And He said to him, ” ‘YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND.’ This is the great and foremost commandment. The second is like it, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.’ On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets.”” (‭‭Matthew‬ ‭22:35-40‬ ‭NASB‬‬)

Love God first with all your being and love others as you love yourself. If we obeyed these two statements, there would be not war, no greed, no selfishness, no hate. 

Our focus has shifted in this country from loving God and loving others to loving only ourselves. This selfishness has bred hatred of change, hatred toward any threat to our to possessions, hatred of anyone who doesn’t perfectly emulate our culture and traditions. 

God is not calling for us to be more tolerant. God is calling us to love Him and to love others. With love comes everything else. After all, Jesus loved us first and gave his life for us. 

“”For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” (John‬ ‭3:16‬ ‭NASB‬‬)

You want true change to come to America? Start by changing your focus. Set your heart and focus on Jesus Christ, and then emulate His life by loving others more than yourself. 

Keep on writing!

A few author quotes to encourage my fellow writers! Don’t stop and don’t quit until it’s all on paper! 

“I notice that you use plain, simple language, short words and brief sentences. That is the way to write English–it is the modern way and the best way. Stick to it; don’t let fluff and flowers and verbosity creep in.”

– Mark Twain

“Any man who keeps working is not a failure. He may not be a great writer, but if he applies the old-fashioned virtues of hard, constant labor, he’ll eventually make some kind of career for himself as writer.”

– Ray Bradbury

“Great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending.”

– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

“Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just get up and go to work.”

– Stephen King

“Write freely and as rapidly as possible and throw the whole thing on paper. Never correct or rewrite until the whole thing is down. Rewrite in process is usually found to be an excuse for not going on. It also interferes with flow and rhythm which can only come from a kind of unconscious association with the material…”

– John Steinbeck

Happy Birthday America!

July 4th was just an ordinary day, until the year 1776. We honor that day long ago, and yet not so long, when our forefathers were fighting and dying, the continental congress, as representatives of each new state, made the decision that those lives would be laid down for something greater: a new nation built upon the principle of liberty. 

Let’s celebrate today not just as a holiday, but as a chance to reflect on those who sacrificed everything for the dream of an American nation founded on freedom of all people. Happy birthday to the United States of America!
