Don’t settle for less.
Don’t sell yourself short.
Don’t be rushed into a feeling, a decision, an opinion.
Don’t let anyone talk you down.
Drop the mic often.
Prioritize, for our time on earth is short.
Think for yourself.
Find your vision. Listen.
Do not hide tears; they’re yours.
Trust God. Take heart. Keep passion.
Fight the good fight, fellow traveler.
Christians often talk about actively changing the world, but too often, we just sit still and passively watch the struggles of others without participating, leading, or caring—we don’t love.
Why? Because many Christians have an inability to use their imagination.
People who can’t use their imagination are susceptible to bigotry, racism, hatred, and violence towards others. Why? Because they can’t imagine any other scenario other than their own. They have an inability to see themselves in someone elses shoes. They can’t see beyond their own narrow reality.
They can’t imagine themselves being poor.
They can’t imagine themselves being abused.
They can’t imagine themselves being unlawfully arrested.
They can’t imagine themselves having a different skin color.
They can’t imagine themselves living in a different country.
They can’t imagine themselves being immersed in a different culture.
They can’t imagine themselves being raised in a different family structure.
They can’t imagine themselves believing in a different religion.
They can’t imagine themselves being ruled by a different political party.
They can’t imagine themselves having different values, priorities, and beliefs.
Imagine being pulled over just because of your skin color.
Imagine a child being the victim of racism.
Imagine if that child was your son, relative, and neighbor.
Imagine having ebola.
Imagine living in a war-torn country.
Imagine losing your home and possessions to bombs and shelling.
Imagine starving for food and thirsting for water.
Imagine having your family executed right in front of you.
Because when you can’t imagine, you can’t empathize, understand, or relate with the struggles, pain, suffering, persecution, and trials of others—you become apathetic, unmoved, stoic, and inactive. — (via sjmattson)

I wish I could tell you this every morning you awake; that you are enough. That you are an intricate, vibrant life. That every soft breath from your lips, and every timid heartbeat, is precious and beautiful. — (via purplebuddhaproject)
