Tragic events in El Paso, Tx and Dayton, Oh.
Let us pray that God will provide peace and comfort to those affected. We do not understand why these things happen. But we know there is evil and these events are evidence of that fact. Bad people doing bad things.
Many things can make us angry, and disrespectful to each other. These emotions fester in some people, to the point that they do the only thing left: lash out.
If you feel like things are out of control, the best thing to do is seek help. There is no human in their right mind that would choose to kill another unless there was some instability (or self-defense…different situation).
If you see a friend being hostile to others, privately check in with them and make sure they are okay. Online hostility can lead to real world tragedy. Seriously.
God commanded us to love one another. That does not mean we have to agree all the time, but certainly being angry and hostile is never a solution.
Let’s love one another and stop the hate that is leading to deadly violence.
Simplified: The cause is hatred. The solution is love.
