Honestly, I have really pondered, "Be kind" and, "The church has been quiet way too long," a lot lately. Can we do both at the same time? YES!! Just because we stand up for what we believe and “shout out” what Christ has done for us, this doesn’t mean that we must attack or protest or cause a controversy while doing it. God calls us to be the light of the world (Matthew 5:14-16) BUT He also calls us to be kind and compassionate (Ephesians 4:32).
